My initial thoughts are as follows:
1 - Participants need a blog to participate, but everyone will be a poster here, too (like in PRGE)
2 - US/Canada participants only for the first round (if it goes well, I'll host again!)
3 - Limit participants to 30 people
This is for two reasons. . . 1) This is my first time hosting and I want to make sure
I can do a good job! and 2) I think you get to know your partner and the other swappers
better when it's smaller
Thanks so much, everyone, I look forward to it!

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)
- 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!
