December Colorswap: Multicolor
I don't think I ever posted the participants in last month's swap. I will try to do better this time around. Remember also there will be a vote on the favorite button later this month, and whoever wins will receive one skein of yarn from each month's theme. Check back later for the vote.
The deadline for registration this month is 12:01 a.m PDT. December 4, 2007. This is Tuesday night. If you wish to sign up, send me an email at arabianknits at gmail dot com with your full name, mailing address, email address that you check regularly, and blog url. This is open to knitters worldwide, but I am going to make a big effort to pair people within the same nation or at least continent, since there is only a month in which to allow for something to arrive. I am going to limit the swap to the first 50 respondents. Please feel free to spread the word about this, though.
The first thing to come to mind in terms of color is, of course, yarn, but please don't limit yourself to that. Handmade cards, candles, soaps, bath salts, stationery, candies, chocolates, knitterly tools or gadgets, knitting themed accessories and roving/fiber for those who are spinners as well are all good idea for gifts. Knitting something for someone would be a lovely gift. Including shipping, the minimum price for this swap should be considered at $25 (remember, that includes shipping and any packaging). I know how difficult it is to determine the monetary value of something handmade, or handspun or hand dyed, and I do not consider those things as cheap, but please keep in mind a general sense of the price of the package being sent. Participants should expect to receive one package and to send out one package for each round of the swap. Packages should arrive by the end of each month, preferably earlier.
Remember that registration for December ends 12:01 a.m. December 4, 2007 and the color theme is Multicolor. Have fun! I will have assignments sent to you by the 7th of December.
