It’s Another Mini Swap!

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Dear knitters, it’s time for the Autumn Mini Swap over in the Carol E Herman Designs group on Ravelry!

For this swap, participants will knit, crochet or sew a handmade autumn-themed item for their swap partner and will send a small (under $5) gift with it.

To quote my friend Jen, who is the amazing organizer of all things swap, and who says it better than I ever could (and who also provided the Anne of Green Gables quote):

Autumn…..sigh…..I have so much love for this season.  Pumpkins, candy corn , crisp air, apples, apple pie, maple candy, glorious color, fall migration….. My list could go on FOREVER.

This mini swap celebrates friendship and the beauty of the Fall season. In this swap you will send your secret swap partner a lovely knitted, crocheted or sewn gift reminiscent of Autumn.

You can read all about it here.  The important things to know are that sign-ups end September 5th and our mailing deadline is October 3rd.

Crafted possibilities include softees, mug rugs, fall garlands, spa cloths…

Our swaps are so much fun: such a great way to get to know other knitters, to create a lovely gift, and to look forward to receiving a surprise in the mail. Here is the post I wrote after the end of our last swap. I hope you will consider joining us!

knit equals joy


In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.

  1. Carol, I’m so glad you posted this because I always forget to check out my groups’ other threads. I tend to just check the ones I’m following.
