Are you bummed too?

So I'm wondering if there are any others out there that are a bit bummed like me? I have always loved this swap and I have more fun collecting items for my partner and then knitting the socks. I love seeing what everyone else gets. And its just as much fun to see my partner loves her goodies and socks. But now I have to admit I am totally bummed. I have not received anything from my partner except a couple email months ago.I sure hope everyone else has gotten there goodies because its a real bummer if you didn't. Sockless in Idaho

Oh no Melanie, I'm so sorry you didn't receive anything. I did hear someone mention something on their blog about being an "angel" so maybe something might still find its way to you. Don't loose hope!

Oh no!! I'd be totally bummed too. Keep us posted...is an angel needed?

oh melanie - i hear you! i had such a great downstream pal with sitm 1 that it didn't matter so much that my upstream pal completely flaked on me, but really - we all undrstand that life happens. here is hoping that everything turns out fine...

I hear ya. I heard such great things about the first SITM swap that I decided to join this round. I didn't experience this swap to be very well organized and things kind of fell apart it seems. I understand that things happen in people's lives... lord only knows I've been through some rough stuff lately. But I made sure to keep on top of things for my downstream partner, not wanting to disappoint her. I don't know if I'll join this swap if there is a third round.

I, too, was totally shafted by my partner. I got nothing. I also asked to be set up with an angel and AJ promised that something was in the works, but I never heard anything again. I know everyone had busy and difficult lifes during the swap, but I'm really, really disappointed and I'm afraid I've now developed a bad taste for swaps and won't participate in another one. It was too much money to spend and not get anything in return.

Ditto to what Carissa said. I was so very disappointed. I may continue to do Knit Alongs but I'm through with swaps. After all the expense and effort I am glad that my downstream pal enjoyed her package, but...
