Sneaky Sheep Skeiny-dipping Swap 2018
Sign-up Deadline: Feb 13th 2018
You’ll be swapping one skein of your stash yarn with another BSKG knitter. We will make every effort to match up weights/yardages with similar weights/yardages. If you provide a skein of fingering weight, expect to be getting something similar in exchange for you to knit. We hope that you’ll truly shop your stash and find a yarn that you love, but haven’t decided what to knit out of it, or that you just haven’t found the right pattern for. Trust your fellow guild members to make something beautiful out what you send. Do: • Choose a yarn that you really like • Choose a weight yarn that you would like to knit yourself • Send ideas of what you originally wanted to make out of the yarn or of what think it might be nice made into • Pick something you’re going to love knitted up • Consider selecting from your shrine of sacred yarn Do NOT: • Send yarn that you hate (you’re getting it back, remember?) • Send bulky yarn that hurts your hands to knit (we will be matching you up with someone who sends a similar weight.) • Expect your swap partner to read your mind (give us a hint! We won’t promise to knit your suggestions, but it will give us a starting point!) • Send clown barf if you hate clown barf or scratchy mohair if you hate mohair (you’re getting this BACK as a knitted item, you’ll want to wear it, won’t you?) • Send a super special yarn that you believe must be knitted into a specific pattern (this isn’t a knitting service, it’s a swap and your partner might have a different vision than you.) IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE THIS YEAR, KIM AND TANYA MUST HAVE YOUR YARN IN HAND BY FEBRUARY’S GUILD MEETING. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please complete the following, attach it to your skein of yarn and bring to the February meeting. Knitted item must be returned by the May meeting.
