Yarn Ball doodad swap ~ pairs UP in OP :)~

copy and pasted rules from last swap
if you have a partner request you must PM me and I am only human so I will try my best to accommodate but sometimes it just dosen`t happen but I will try.

This was so popular last time, we're up for it again!!!!!!!!!!

"What's a Yarn Ball Swap?", you say? Well! Get 4oz of high quality, worsted/aran weight yarn, cake it up, put some interesting doo-dads and thingamajigs in the middle of the cake and there you have a Yarn Ball Swap!

Here's the Rules:

~ You can be in for as many Balls as you want! ()
~ Yarn MUST be 4oz (you can do a 3.5oz skien if needed but add in a small extra to make up for the slight difference in yarn) and MUST be high quality - no patons, purewool, or peace fleece or 1ply.
~ There will be a $10 - 15 mimimum on the doodads and thingamajigs that you put in the middle of the cakes.
~ Each party is responsible for their own shipping.
~ IF you have a partner request, send it to me BEFORE close date. I won't be able to change anything after it closes.
~ The yarn you send MUST have identification with it: meaning yarn base (BFL, Merino, etc) and how many oz/yardage MUST BE WITH IT!
~ DC IS MANDATORY!!!! If you are outside of the US, then let me know your shipping arrangements.

Any questions? Just PM me!!!!

DATES:
open-Jan 1st
Swap closes - Jan 10th
Pairs Posted within 24hours of close
Shipping Date - Jan 25th

I'd like to receive girly/gn/boyish yarn: any- prefer GN or boyish, though Superwash ok. I love semi-solids, earth tones, browns, greens, teals, you get the idea. I also like sock yarn.

I'd like to stay away from: pastels and neons

I like these types of doodads and thingamajigs: stitch markers, I *really* would love knitters balm (unscented).

Want to stay away from: Dollar store stuff, stuff you received in other swaps that you didn't like, clearly used items (I will be sending all new things and would appreciate the same thoughtfulness), food, bath and body stuff, gothic themed items.


number of spots- 2
P.S. I have GN or boyish yarn to trade, but nothing specifically girly.
Also, you don't have to put my doodad's in the cake of yarn-- I don't like recaking it.

**I have already started purchasing for my partners. I am excited!!!

Ummmm, I actually finished shopping for my partners. I got some really cool stuff (I think).
