Spring Mystery Swap

It's almost spring! Ready for a swap? This is a fun swap that won't require a lot of time or money. Here's how it will work:
Sign-ups begin now and end on the first day of Spring, March 21.
You will be assigned a pal - it won't be a secret pal, you will be swapping with each other. The mystery comes from what you will be swapping!
You know that one skein of yarn you have in your stash (or on the shelf of your favorite LYS) that you love, but don't know what to do with? You will be sending it to your pal - and she will knit or crochet something with it and mail it back to you. In the meantime, she will be sending you that special skein of yarn that she has, and you will knit or crochet something for her and mail it back. And, since this is a reading and knitting group, you will be sending a book back with the finished project.
The Rules:
Sign-ups begin now and end March 21. To sign up, send an e-mail to me at grammieknits@yahoo.com with your name and address, blog address (if you have one) and whether or not you are willing to send overseas.
Once you receive your pals name, you need to contact each other and get to know each other a little bit. Remember the fun part of any exchange is getting to know your partner. Since this is not a secret exchange, getting to know each other will be that much easier. The only secret will be what kind of yarn you are mailing - and what you will be making with the yarn you receive. That will remain a mystery!
Deadline for mailing your skein of yarn to your pal is April 15 (right along with your income tax return!)
Finished projects along with a book (it would be fun, but not absolutely necessary, for the book to somehow relate to the project) should be mailed back to your partner no later than May 30. That should give you plenty of time to come up with a project.
When you receive your yarn back - made up into a wonderful something - post a picture on the blog!
That's it! Sign-ups begin now!
