The Rules!

Rules aren't always fun, but we have to live by them :)

Here's the guidelines for this swap:

1) You must have a blog to participate, but you will also be invited to post to the swap blog.

2) You must post weekly to your blog.

3) This is a secret swap, so you must allow anonymous posts to your blog. You do not need to have an anonymous email address if you don't want to. However, you may want to consider it if you want to get to know your partner better.

4) You must contact your partner at least once a week thru the swap.

5) The gift for at least one category must be a skein of yarn (quality, please, unless your partner says they love fun fur!).

6) The gift for at least four of the categories must be knitting/fiber related. Soaps/candies/tea or other goodies are welcome, but the bulk of your package should be knitting goodness.

7) Minimum spending is $25 (not including shipping).

8) Sorry, this swap is for US/Canada only and will be limited to 50 participants.

9) You must post your package details to the group blog (you can post on your own blog, too, but thanking your spoiler on the group blog is required!)

General Swap Etiquette.

I am finalizing the categories and the questionnaire now and will open signups on January 7. Signups will run until Jan 27 at midnight EST. Matches will be distributed by February 3 and packages must be received by your partner by March 7.

Happy New Year and Happy Swapping!

Hello, I have a question regarding the US/Canada requirement:

I am currently in Japan, but I am moving back home in March , around the same time as the packages are sent to the spoilees. I myself have no qualms about sending a package from Japan to the States/Canada (since I return shortly after the deadline) so if I provide my American address is that ok?
