Are you working on a Sock Yarn Blankie? How about some Monster Socks? Or even a Scrappy Granny Square Blanket? I’ve got something you might be interested in! I have a group on Ravelry (Sock Yarn Minis/Scraps Swapping) where we do lots of swapping on mini skeins of yarn. I also offer a lot of different Swapless Swaps.
A Swapless Swap is where the participants pay me a fee to join (US and International are welcome!), I order lots of yarn from an indie dyer or yarn shop, the yarn comes to me, I make them into lots & lots of mini skeins, then I swap them up and send them back to the participants. It’s a really awesome way to build a stash of minis from some amazing dyers!!
There are actually a few different Swapless Swaps coming up in October that still have spots available. I thought you might like to hear about them and maybe sign up! The money for all of these swaps is due October 15 and is payable to me via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org). Simply click the name of the Swapless Swap down below and you’ll be taken to the thread on Ravelry (you’ll need to sign in to Ravelry if you aren’t already), then just comment in the thread that you’d like to sign up!
