Hat swop

default Hat swop

Post by Adrian on 27th August 2011, 2:43 pm

As we are settling into Fall/Autumn and our thoughts turn to cooler days and nights, I thought it might be a nice idea to have a create hat swap.

So here is the plan, over the next month or so those interested can knit or crochet a woolly hat, then at the end of September submit your names and addresses and I will randomly allocate a hat to swap.

P&P to and from Canada is silly expensive at the moment, so I think I will only do internal swap if there is another Canuk or cousin across the border interested..

Post your interest on this thread - swap is open to all members

I like this idea - as long as I have time to knit a new one for LMC first!

Any sort, my current thoughts are that once made you can post a photo and then it can be claimed...

Or not, still working it out

There is a gnome hat that I found, I was going to suggest that everyone did one of those, but I cannot find the pattern for it.

I did however find another pattern

Ooooh - fab patterns there. Was wondering what to knit and I have some great yarn in my stash that would work for that gnome hat! Am happy to volunteer to knit something to send to either US or Canada.

B*gger - just realised it's already the end of September! Any chance of an extra week or so please boss?

Also, how are we allocating who is sending to who? Happy to post overseas if that helps matters.

When are we actually going to do the swapping Badger? In other words when do I need to knit something by?
