Now all you have to do is remember to follow all of the rules that are listed on the blog. Here a few of the very important ones.
1. No mittens are allowed to be made out of 100% acrylic.
2. Contact your pal at least 3 times during the swap using an anonymous email to say hi. I've developed friendships via my swaps in the past and maybe you'll be able to as well!
3. Post an update to this journal at least once during the swap - you can provide a picture of the yarn you're using, the pattern, whatever you like. Just throw something out there to let us know you exist. :-)
4. Have fun and start knitting!
