Gimme your stuff!

 

Gimme Your Stuff

So, I'm gonna make available - a ouple of skeins of Jamieson's of Shetland lacewight yarn, a ball of Orkney Angora yarn, some Edinburgh Rock, a copy of the Glasgow Herald, a packet of shortbread and can negotiate other things. What would I like? Some unusual sock yarn or prepared fibre, such a BFL or Como (Cormo?) for spinning and, if possible, a JApanese knitting pattern (no, I can't speak Japanese)

Well...I saw you on the GimmeSwap site, and I can stretch past food trades...I'm listed there, BTW.

Although I'm not a knitter, I could find you some locally-made/spun materials. We have quite a good crafts community, and lots of sheep. ;-)

But am wondering if you'd send me something that I wouldn't have to knit/weave/stitch with. Is that possible?

Hi there -- got your response! Cool!!!

Since I am fairly ignorant of All Things Fiberish, will go to the Hillcountry Weavers
http://www.hillcountryweavers.com/main.php
and see what local, non-greasy finished things they have. If there's anything that looks interesting to you on their Web site, let me know.

Me?
Hhhmmm...if there are local candies (ones that might not melt when being shipped thru Texas heat), jams/jellys, cookies (biscuits? my Aussie friends are helping me be bilingual!), small books or postcards with local things...those might be nice.

You can email me directly at
lwitzel at austin.rr.com

When you can, do email me your real email so we can work out the details!

I'm traveling back from a family visit today, but hope to be online again tonight.

;-)

I'm a knitter and a crocheter. I'd love to swap yarn with you! I have some great sock yarn I could send, and some wool (what colors do you like?). Let me know if you're interested in a swap. :)

As for me -- I'd love to get some yarn from your neck of the woods. :) And maybe some English tea. :) My son loves Wine Gums, and I haven't been able to find them here. So a box of those would make him very very happy! :)

I can add in other little crafting or US goodies too if you let me know other things you'd be interested in receiving.

I just sent in my request to be listed on the website, so they haven't added me yet. But my blog link should be listed soon. You can see my blog (and my Gimme entry) at www.julisjots.blogspot.com

You can email me at juliwyant [at] bellsouth [dot]net

Hugs! Juli

I'd love to swap too. I'm a knitter in Houston, TX, so let me know what you would like. I'd love yarn, shortbread, tea.

Please email me at lisgitt AT gmail DOT com and we can discuss the trade. I don't spin, but I'm sure I can find the fiber for you. I'll be glad to get socks that rock and anything else you might want. The Orkney angora sounds wonderful!

Hello,

This swap your stuff sounds like fun. I do not have a blog, but can I still participate? Do you hand spin? I have handcrafted maple spindle racks, holds nine spindles, that go on the wall that I am willing to swap for a handcrafted spindle from your country. Contact me at foundmine@pvtnetworks.net Linda

Hi! I'd love some Scottish snacks to post on my blog. I can offer you some neat things from New England, too.
