Hello!

Hi There!

I created this blog to gauge interest in a knitting/fiber swap with a scavenger hunt theme. I would create a set of categories. Each participant would send a package to their partner with knitting/fiber items that represent each category. Example categories.

1 - Something purple
  • pretty self explanatory :) you'd send anything purple (yarn, tape measure, stitch markers)
2 - Something related to the letter 'G'
  • you could send something grey, a needle gauge, a pattern for a gansey

3 -Something with circles

  • a round tape measure, a project bag made of circular fabric

You get the idea :)

I wouldn't start this until after the Holidays. . . so please, if you're interested, please post a comment and let me know. If there is enough interest, I'll post back after the first of the year for signups. I'd probably limit the number of people for the first round, as it would be my first time hostessing :)

Also, fair disclosure. . . I saw this idea on Swap-Bot for a sewing notion swap and I just thought it was fantastic and wanted to carry it over to knitting!
