August Color Swap: Pinks & Peaches

I intended to post this last Friday, but got bogged down with the blogger mess. I will extend the sign up period to August 3 to make sure people get in. Also, I have a few more buttons to post, and need to get a hold of a woman who sent me a few that have disappeared. I downloaded them, and deleted the email, but then couldn't get them to load. Please email me again, and if you can have the images in either a jpg or gif, that would be the most helpful.

The deadline for registration this month is 12:01 a.m PDT. August 3, 2007. This is Thursday night. If you wish to sign up, send me an email me 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 August ends 12:01 a.m. August 3, 2007 and the color theme is Pinks and Peaches. Have fun! I will have assignments sent to you by the 5th of August.
