I like to do swaps but I don’t often get the chance. Either the time line doesn’t fit in with my pay schedule, or the swappers expect a lot (EXPENSIVE yarn, NO acrylic, snobby snobby snobby). One swap I like to do is with the Red Heart Lovers group on Ravelry. Everyone is down to earth and there’s no stigma against those of us who actually LIKE to work with acrylic yarns.
My swap box from my partner arrived today. All eleven pounds of it! It may be the best box I’ve ever gotten. Yarn, crochet magazines, project bags, office supplies, candy. What more could one want? I’m still working on my handmade object for my return box, but today was spent reading crochet magazines and eating candy.
