First Sock Done
I have the first sock finished. I looked through all my books until I found the perfect
pattern. I ended up using Embosed Leaves Socks out of the Interweave Knits Favorite Socks.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out now for sock number 2.
Swap is open to residents of the US and Canada. International participants will be accepted as long as I find pals willing or wanting an international pal. We had a couple of international participants last time around that worked out really well so we'll probably find pals for everyone.
To sign up, send your questionnaire and answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get an invite to the blog so that you can post to it once you are accepted into the swap.
Details for Round 4 of the Hand Dyed Yarn Swap!
1. The fourth round of this swap is for a skein of hand-dyed sock yarn and a picture that inspired you to dye it. 2. You must dye the yarn yourself specifically for your assigned pal. 3. The yarn must be enough to knit an adult sized pair of socks. 4. I may or may not assign pairs this round. I'm going to post a poll to see how people liked that idea last round. Assigning pairs means that you will send yarn to the person that is sending yarn to you. 5. You may send other goodies to your pal along with the yarn but you are only required to send yarn appropriate for the current round of this swap as well as the picture/postcard that inspired you. 6. You must be able to take and post digital pictures and you must post a picture of your yarn on this blog within a week of receiving it. Seeing other dyers creations is one of the best things about this swap soplease, please post pictures of what you receive. 7. You must completely fill out the questionnaire and give your swap pal some guidance. You will not be assigned a partner if you do not complete the questionnaire.
