12 month commitment so please read the guidelines carefully and give a lot of thought before signing up.

open to the first 25 people

I will check your feedback for any negative reports before you can be a part of this swap and ruin the fun for others.

8x8 knit or crochet squares of the knitter's choice of color and pattern using acrylic yarns #4 worsted weight. If 'wool' is used please label as such. You can use different types of yarn, different knitting stitches, or perhaps use up scraps of lighter weight yarn, by doubling it up.
"We get what we get and we don't get upset."

Drawing a template on heavy paper or card stock helps with the gauge instead of measuring often.

It is up to each person if they want to include the pattern or the name of the pattern and a note or card.
You will make two and send one...keeping the other for your own friendship afghan.

Negative feedback will be given if a square is not sent to your partner on time or not sent at all.
And you will be removed from the swap.

1. Mail on or before the third Saturday of each month and keep track of the tracking numbers if you choose not to send the information to me.
It would be better if international mail could be sent sooner.

2. You will mail your square directly to the person you are given for the month.
You will be given a new name at the beginning of each month. Everyone should have their square by then.

3. Let me know immediately if you are unable to fulfill your commitment. Life does get in the way at times.
Or If I screwed up!

4. PM me the following information if you are interested:
forum name
your name and mailing address
can you mail internationally?

If any of the information is posted on the open forum or incomplete in the pm you will be excluded from the swap.
Please be a kind swapper. With your help the swap will run smoothly and no one should be upset or disappointed.


Thank you,
PaKnitter (Linda)

knitting link for knit 6" squares...with a little adjusting maybe these will work for 8" squares adding a border if multiples are not given. But maybe you guys are one step ahead of me and know how to knit a true 8" square.

Thanks for the link. Are we knitting 6 or 8 inch squares? Or did I miss something?

I'm a little slow on the abbreviations, pm. But I got it now, and followed your directions. I hope I am 'in'.
Thanks for being willing to do this.

No...I'm missing something and will edit my post. Thanks for catching it. I couldn't find anything for 8" squares but maybe 6" would work with a border or maybe adjusting the multiples if given.
I always have a hard time getting the right size square to start so that's why I suggested a template. Maybe I should be talking to myself...lol

If anyone else sees a mistake or has a question please pm me if someone doesn't catch it here. I strive for perfection but fall short every time.
