Update 3/27/12: We still need 2 knitters!! Please email me if you would like to join us!!
|Some of the patches closer up (Winter 2008)|
|Finished mat from the original swap (Winter 2008 issue)|
|Root Vegetable Patch (Winter 2009)|
So I am looking for up to 11 other knitters to join me in this adventure. It will entail knitting 12 12-inch squares of some sort of farmland-either using a pattern from Living Crafts or one of your own. (Note the patterns range from 10-inch by 12-inch rectangles and 10-inch to 12-inch squares, so some adjustments may need to be made.) You will then mail 11 of them to me and once I get them all, I will send you 11 different ones back which you will be able to configure and join to make an amazing farm playmat for your child(ren). I am willing to do this swap internationally, so please do not let that be a factor for you--especially since I know I have some international followers. If you are interested in purchasing the magazines, Living Crafts is offering us a deal of $3.49 plus shipping for each issue. You can purchase both issues for less than you can purchase one on their website!

Oh, and if you are joining me, please feel free to grab a button and post it on your blog so we can get more people interested. The more people, the larger your playmat will be!
Quick update: We already have 6 participants, but keep the names coming. I have no problem putting together two swaps if we get enough names. Also Pardis, the editor at Living Crafts posted this on Facebook and told me I could post it here:
