Description:

Winter is coming, and that means cooler months for most of us. Think hot chocolate, snowmen, sledding... I've noticed that my woolie stash is dwindling, either because the wool socks grandma knitted shrank in the wash or my best friend borrowed my fave scarf and "forgot" to return it. Let's make our partners (you will each have 1 partner for this swap) something cozy and warm. Please keep this a handmade swap, no need for superfluous consumerism. Your items may be bought, but they must be hand made by someone else if you're just hopeless. Your woolen can be anything you like, please read your partner's profiles for clues and fave colors/motifs. Your pieces can be knitted or crocheted, I suppose if some of your are really adept at sewing they can be sewn as well, but I don't want to see any flimys woolens! Only send what you yourself would LOVE to receive :) Some ideas:

+scarf +mittens +flap hat +earmuffs +shawl

Please don't sign up for this swap if you don't want to put in the time and effort. I will be monitoring for low ratings, if you've got a rating lower than a 4.8, please refrain from joining unless it is justifiable. I know sometimes life happens, don't we all wish we could sit home and knit all day? No flakers, please don't make me be the bad guy. I hate being the bag guy. Since postage on this will be pretty light, I'm opening it up to international swappers as well. If you need more time just let me know, I'm willing to extend the swap date if we feel we need to. Have fun!

to short of time to make it

How long (realistically) do you think it would take? I'm a fast knitter/crocheter, so I'll leave this open to you guys.

I added 4 more days to the swap date. Honestly it's kinda silly to have a swap go over a month, no?

Watching for now to see if I have enough time to make a scarf for my partner.

Does the item have to be made out of wool?

The only request I have is natural fiber. I am not picky otherwise, but I really am not a fan of synthetics.
