Advent Mini Swap Sign-Ups

Dear knitters,

It’s time to sign up for the second annual advent mini swap in the Knit Equals Joy group on Ravelry. Sign-ups end September 20th.

This awesome swap takes place during advent, with one gift to be opened on each Sunday in advent and the final gift on Christmas Day.  Here’s what our awesome swap organizer, Katherine, says to describe the swap:

This swap will require 5 presents total. One for each of the Sundays during Advent + one for Christmas. Only one of the days will require a handcrafted item although you are welcome to craft as many of them as you wish.

Dec 3 – Theme 1: Tree(s)
Dec 10 – Theme 2: Something with a pointy red hat (Santa, elves, gnomes….)
Dec 17 – Theme 3: Something red OR green
Dec 24 – Theme 4: Something inspired by a favorite Christmas Song
Dec 25 – Theme 5: Something special for your SP….a Notion/yarn/fabric (something for knitting, sewing, quilting…etc) based on your SP’s likes and hobbies.

A small food treat (or other non-edible treat) will be considered “bonus”… and could be opened when the package arrives.

Your one handcrafted item can be for any of the above days. If you want to craft more than one day (or all 5… that is fine too!).

Again, our swaps are “secret” swaps, so you don’t know who your swap partner is until you receive your package in the mail.

If you’d like to join in, come on over and sign up here by September 20th.  Hope to see you there!!!
