Hi Everyone!

My goodness, you all are FAST! For those of you who have not yet completed your boxes (or started) NO WORRIES!! You've got lots of time, your pal doesn't have to receive the box until March 7, so you've got 29 whole days of February to shop :) I'm knitting one of the items for my box, so it won't be ready for a bit.

And a final reminder, if you haven't heard from your pal by now, PLEASE EMAIL ME or POST A COMMENT HERE! (I'd prefer email, but I know there have been many email issues so far, so if you need to comment here, that's OK). If I don't hear from you, I will assume all is well and good. I've been trolling thru everyone's blogs, and I see lots of anonymous comments, so I think, for the most part, everyone is communicating.

I'm going to post the contest on Monday, so be sure to check back. In case you need enticement . . .. the prize is a skein of MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM........... Malabrigo :)

Finally, I love how everyone is using the group blog! My favorite part of swaps is not really getting the package, but getting to know new people, and I feel like everyone posting around here makes it easier to get to know many folks! It makes me happy everyone seems to be having a great time. If you have any feedback for me, please feel free to share. I want this to be a good time for all involved and I want to make it more fun if I can when I do another round (assuming people WANT another round!).

This has been really fun to figure out what to get for each category, and to have it be appropriate for the recipient. Thanks for hosting such a fun swap!

And I looooove Malabrigo!!!!!!!

I second this. This is the coziest, most community-oriented swap I've done.

And ditto the Malabrigo!
