A community to organize the trading of knitted and crocheted squares so that we can all end up with tons of random squares that we can make into beautiful afghans/blankets (or whatever else you might want to make with them!) :)

Everybody is welcome to join that knits or crochets! Beginners, experts, doesn't matter! We welcome participants from all over the world.

Deadline for the July trade = July 31st!

Rules/guidelines for the monthly square trade:

>> Only sign up for the monthly trade if you're serious about it. Someone's counting on you. :) If you disappear, are uncommunicative, and no one ever finds out what happened with your square, you won't be able to join any future trades (unless you have a good reason -- please let the moderator/maintainer know).

>> Squares must be 8"x8" (that's 8 inches by 8 inches). Please do your best to make sure the square is actually 8"x8", otherwise it'll make it a little difficult to sew all the squares together. ;) This means that you might have to take your square apart at some point, if you're not familiar with how big it will knit/crochet up. check the memories for help with this.

>> Add this community to your friends list so you don't miss out on a monthly trade poll that you want to be a part of.

>> If you want to be part of the monthly trade, you have to fill out the poll for that month. otherwise I'll assume you don't want to be part of it for that month, which is of course fine. You don't have to participate in every monthly trade, only when you want to.

>> There will be a deadline for when the squares should be sent out. If for some reason you signed up and can't send out your square, let me know so I can arrange for a replacement square.

>> You can specify the type of yarn you are able to send and to receive (animal, plant, synthetic).

>> You can say how many squares you want to trade each month (1, 2, 3, or 4).

>> And the obvious one... be nice. :)
