Just a Note

Just a quick note: I am sending each of you a Blogger invitation so that you can post to the blog. The invitations will be sent to the email address that you used when you signed up for the swap, NOT your secret pal email address. Please accept the blog invitation as soon as possible. If, by the 15th of November, you haven't accepted the invitation, I will delete you from the blog and give someone else your spot. Also, please do not post to the blog until we've filled the group up. (I don't want all the blog instructions/rules to be buried.)

Part Deux

Here it is knitters. Round two of the Sock It To Me Sock Swap.

The knitty gritty:

Sign Ups: Swappers that participated in the first round will get open invitations first. (We know they are loyal!) Official sign ups will open October 21st and end November 15th. I will only be accepting 50 participants, so if we get 50 before the sign up date ends, I will pair everyone up early.

Sign Up Requirements: First, you must be a sock knitter. (Or crocheter if you are just that good.) Second, you must have an active blog. This means you post 4, or more, times a month. (I'm the blog police!) Third, you will need to set up a secret email account.

Swap Requirements: This swap will be running from November 15th to March 1st. I am giving a little extra time, due to the holiday seasons. (Please be advised that if you will be on vacation, I would appreciate you shooting either me, or your swap pal, a quick email. This way no one thinks that they are getting flaked on while their swap partner is in the Bahamas soaking up the sun.)

You are required to not only post to your blog, but email your partner. Please be generous. Most of us like a lot of communication from our pals.

Now onto the goodies: Packages sent to your pal should contain a hand knit pair of socks, along with a few goodies. The minimum allowance on spending is $60 over the three and a half month period. This does NOT include the yarn/pattern for the socks you knit your pal. The way to find out what your pal likes is simple: Read her questionnaire, (which will be provided on the 15th), and read her blog. Some ideas: stitch markers, knitting/crochet patterns/books, sweet treats, candles, bath items, other handknit items, CD's...

If all of this sounds good to you and you want to play, please email me at blueyedpenny(at)yahoo(dot)(com) with the following information: your first and last name, your secret email address, your mailing address and your blog website.

Let's get ready to have some fun!
