The question topic this week on the UK Swap blog ( http://ukswap.blogspot.com/ ) is:
Q. Have you done a swap before (doesn’t have to be a knitting swap)? What do you like best about swapping? Are there any personal “requirements” that a swap has to have before you will join?
A. Yes, this is the third swap I’ve taken part in, the two previous swaps were organised by Angel Yarns on their forums and they were a lot of fun. I especially liked that for those swaps you had a theme that you had to fit into your gift. I think the best thing about swapping is spending time looking for a gift for someone you don’t know and you only have their blog or questionnaire to go by. I also love looking at the photos of all of the parcels when they arrive. I don’t really have any requirements, only that the swap is within my budget and usually based within the UK.
