Now that the spring swap is winding up, it's time for a whoduknit summer swap! The Yard Sale Swap was a lot of fun last summer so I decided to repeat it. I don't know if this is true where you live, but here in Maine "Yard (pronounced 'yaad') Sailing" is a tradition in the summer. Everybody loves a bargain and you just never know what you will find - one person's trash is indeed another person's treasure! And who is more qualified than Whoduknit members to track down bargains! So this is what I came up with for our summer swap. You have $10.00 (not including postage) to spend on your pal - that's right - $10.00 - NO MORE! This is a real test of your creativity and thriftiness (read that as CHEAP). Shop yard sales, thrift stores, dollar stores, surplus stores, and of course your own stash. Some things that come to mind are yarn, books, wool sweaters that can be unraveled, or felted down, tote bags, vintage knitting magazines and books, handknit items, etc. etc. etc. I'm sure that you can think of lots more.THE RULES:Sign-ups begin now, July 1, and end July 14. Partners will be assigned shortly after that. You won't be sending to the same person who is sending to you. It's up to you whether or not you want to remain anonymous but you should contact your partner at least once a week just to say 'Hi' or send an e-card, or comment on their blog. Remember - whoduknit swaps are all about getting to know one another.Packages should be in the mail before Labor Day so the deadline for mailing is August 31.To sign up:E-mail me at with
