Dishrag Tag is slow, so I thought I'd put out feelers to see who would be interested in a swap.
Here's an example of how it would work.
- 10 people sign up.
- Swap host PMs those people to give them her address.
- Participants make 10 cloths, knit or crochet, in whatever 100% cotton brand/colors they like.
- Participants mail their 10 completed cloths, along with some money to help cover postage to the final destination and their address, to the swap host.
- Swap host takes one cloth from each of the received groups and creates a new set of groups, then mails them to each participant.
- Participant receives package containing 10 cloths, one from each participant.
I would think there should be a deadline so that we're not waiting months for our cloths, but it would depend on how many people sign up and how long it takes each person to make one cloth.
What do you guys think?
Simple's about all I can do.
I'd be interested in participating. I've been doing a weekly knit along for cloths and have a *small* stash.
Some are even nice enough to use in an exchange -- some are more part of a learning curve. lol
So if this takes off, count me in.
I'd love to host this. thanks for getting this started, Brandy-
We could take as many as want to participate, just have more than one group if there's more than 10 people. I'm thinking 10 would be enough to make at once.
I'll also knit up a few extra so if someone doesn't come through in the end, we can all get an assortment.
If you already have a cone of yarn you know you'd like to use to do that, would you post the color? that way we can try to get different colors. I know Michaels and W-Mart are both carrying cone cotton.
I have lots of cones in different colors- so I'll choose based on what other people pick to use add a different color. or if you have an assortment (jules) that's okay too.
simple can still be very pretty- if you need patterns, we can help you find some nice ones that are free on the web to try out.

I picked up a one pound cone of Peaches & Cream, Spring Meadows, today. I estimate I can get 8 or 9 cloths out of that. 10 if I'm lucky.

Mine is mostly light yellow & a faded rose color, then a little light green here & there. I couldn't get a good pic of it unless it was in the sun, so here you go:
Another option would be to start a second round of disrags going that way we'd have more of them zipping around. I know i'd be willing to do it more than once, I bet many other's would as well!
