Can you believe this is our 5th year doing this swap?!?!?!
As you may remember, this is a low cost, but full of love, friendship, and fun way to obtain an advent yarn calendar without having to spend upwards of $200.
Emily and Stephanie (we) started this swap 5 years ago because we wanted advent calendars but neither of us had the funds then, or now, to dedicate to such an endeavor. SO we said, "Why don't we make up our own advent calendars from our scraps and send them to each other?" Thus the "24 Days of Cheer Swap was born.
We are so excited to open things up for international swappers this year again though we did need to separate out USA vs international signups as shipping internationally from the US is not doing well exactly at this time.
Those within the USA can find the signups HERE
Those international participants can sign up HERE
If you are not on Ravelry anymore, please send Emily and Stephanie an email with a request to be partnered up at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the details for the amazing event!
1) Prepare 24 mini skeins/balls of 5-7 grams each (Fingering/Sock Yarn)
2) At least 12 of the mini’s need to be from stash (all can be from stash as well).
3) For day 25, please package up a full size skein of indi-died yarn for your partner. (Please no box store or commercial yarn)
