- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES



The Swap Details:
- Homemade dishcloths are a fun and quick project that you can use to wash dishes, hang on a cabinet, or use as a woolly trivet. Because of the small size and minimal time investment, they are the perfect opportunity to try new techniques, patterns, and bold color combinations. The only limit is your creativity!

- This swap is for 2 handmade (knit or crochet) dishcloths. They should be a standard size cloth, at least 7" x 7" or as large as 9" x 9" (or even larger if you and your partner agree on this!)

- You may have up to 3 partners. Exception: First time swappers are allowed only one partner, to allow you to ease into and learn about the swap process.

- If you and your partner would like to swap more than 2 dishcloths that is okay, just make sure that you discuss with each partner any potential extras.

- If you are feeling especially generous and want to spoil your partner that's fine too, just remember that spoiling is not expected; therefore might not be equally reciprocated by your partner.

* Due to the nature of a dishcloth, only natural fibers should be used, particularly cotton. Some good brands are: Dishie by Knit Picks (hands down, my favorite), Sugar & Cream, Peaches & Cream, I Love This Cotton, Cotton-Ease, and CotLin. Some people use hemp, linen, or bamboo. Acrylic yarn should not be used to make dishcloths.*

Communication is essential to the swap process. Participants should post once before or shortly after sending in their questionnaire, and after that should post here in the discussion thread once a week while the swap is running. Posting on the thread is a great way to keep partners updated and get to know your fellow Craftsters better.

I love making dishcloths.  I like the idea of a project I can complete in one evening.  I'll be sending in my questionnaire!

Okay, I just randomly saw this swap (I wasn't seeking out new swaps, but it appeared at the bottom of the page for another swap), and since I love making dishcloths, I think I might join. The timing is good and I happen to have a bag of cotton yarn handy!
