yarn stash swap anyone?

I am organizing a yarn swap - wanted to find out if the guys in here might be interested in participating - I haven't worked out all the details yet but we'll figure them out - at this point I'm drumming up interest - we will have a questionnaire that you'll be able to fill out, I'll match folks up to (as best as I can) provide each of you with someone who has yarn of a type that you might be interested in...

email me - either here or personally at kyle@kunnecke.net and let me know you're interested - I know I have lots of yarn to select from, and I'm always excited to get packages in the mail...

sign up ya'll - let's have some fun!

:)

...thing is with me, If I have the yarn IN my stash in the first place. I'm using so much at such a quick pace...

...if it's there to be swapped, I'd love to do it, but, most of the time it comes and goes like there's no tomorrow.

...darn those babies, bein' born all the time

A "stash swap" sounds like a great idea to me. I am always running across yarn here in the house and wonder what the #$&* I was thinking when I bought it, but it might be just what someone else needs. Keep us posted!

There's lots of reasons to participate in a trade - some folks who spin might like to share their talents with those of us who don't spin... sometimes we have yarn in our stashes that just sits there (I have a HUGE stash) and some folks like the idea of sharing inspiration. Mario (as I know) is an incredible inspiration - I know I for one would love to get a "knitting kit" from you - maybe with one of your patterns and the yarn, etc. that would go with it.

it's all in fun - and for the sake of creating community - I'm sure there will be many people interested - and once we get this swap completed (I'm hoping it's really successful) I plan on starting a knitting swap - but not sure what it'll be yet... that's a few months down the road-

Life is about giving - and sharing - so that's my focus of the day -

I agree Kyle; I just have a hard time with the "letting go" portion of the exchange.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

My problem is I'd have to go out and *buy* something in order to have something I'd be willing to trade away...

and why would I want to send somebody something I don't want to keep myself?

but that's me.
