Greetings fellow 340+ knitters,
First off, let me say that if you could attend only one PSKC meet-up this year, THIS THURSDAY SHOULD BE THE ONE!! This is the meet-up for all you yarn lovers who have those leftover skeins from a big project or those single skeins that you have no idea what to make out of it or went momentarily insane and bought lace weight and fun fur yarn. =)
Please RSVP early (like as soon as you read this email) so that I have an appropriate count and can coordinate with Sweet Melissa. Our meet-up will start at 7 pm, as usual. All are welcomed. If you have yarn for the swap, you will place it on the indicated table. At 8 pm, the yarn swap will begin.
PREPARING FOR THE YARN SWAP
a) All yarn should be assigned a point value based upon the purchase price of the yarn. If you don't remember the price, you can approximate it or you can use one of our on hand "experts" to evaluate the yarn.
1 point - $5-10
2 points - $11-17
3 points - $18-25
4 points $ 26 - 37
b) Yarn should include the original tag (containing the content, care instructions, gauge, etc....)
c) If you lost the tag or if you are swapping hand-spun or hand-dyed yarn, write the relevant info on a yellow sticky and place it and the yarn into a ziplock bag (so as to not separate)
d) On the back of the tag, attach a sticky with the point value and your name CLEARLY indicated.
e) If you own a pet, YOU MUST put a warning on the tag due to people having allergies.
a) You can take out / swap the amount of yarn equal to the point value of the yarn you put in. The more you bring, the more you can swap.
b) Have fun and no biting =P
