I joined a blog swap on Ravelry. A swap is where you send items to someone else and get some items in return. This swap is a little different in that the person you are sending stuff to is not the person who is sending stuff to you - it is a entirely different person.
Since it is fiber related, we were asked to fill out a questionnaire and then the choosing began. The person I received as a giftee has a blog and has been knitting for a while and started spinning a little while ago.
The rules required sending 7 items so you could blog about a package a day for a week to increase writing on your blog. Since I don't have too much problem with that aspect, I thought it would be a cool experiment.
The $40 package has to include:
- Must Haves: 100g of yarn, knitting notions, embellishments, and a pattern
- Other Options: something handmade, treats, magazine, stationery, and something to photo for the blog.
Since my giftee has just started spinning, I decided to include some fiber of various types for testing. When I started spinning, it was great to sample small amounts of fiber to see whether I liked to spin before buying. Of course, we all know what happened to that....
Here are the packages all wrapped up. It will be fun I think to open a package a day and see what is there and then write about what you would like to do with it.
Since it is all a surprise, I am excited to see what will be coming in the mail. The deadline for sending the package is September 26th.
