Swap Virgin

is me.

But not for much longer.  I have signed up for my first swap.

As appealing as the idea is, I’ve avoided them because I am a slow sock knitter.  Veeeeery slow.  Socks are usually standby knitting, for when I don’t have anything better to do.  This is probably why they tend to be rib or stocking stitch, because if it’s a couple of months between rounds, I’m not likely to remember where I’m up to in the pattern.  So no sock swap love for me.

But what’s wonderful about this swap is that it’s not socks!  Better than socks, it’s a spinning swap! The ingeniousness!

You spin a 4 oz skein and send it to your swap pal with a gift of 4 oz unspun fibre.  (And receive the same.)  It doesn’t start for a month, but I’m looking forward to it so very much.

The name of the swap is the Hush-Hush Handspun Hootenanny.  If you’re interested, you can find more information here.  (Or there’s the Rav link.)  As a Firefly fan, I’d probably call it the Super-Secret Spinning Shindig, but Hootenanny still fits, so that’s cool.

Now I have an *excuse* to shop for more fibre!  Awesome.
