Hello All!This is something we've been looking forward to and it's not a hat! Melanie designed the pattern for us so that we could do a yarn exchange scarf. All of the instructions are below - let us know if you have questions. Please let us know if you want to participate. That way I know who to wait for in case something doesn't arrive.
Yarn Exchange Scarf
Here are more precise instructions:
All yarn must be received by July 15th. I will do a quick turn around so that you will have almost two months to knit the scarves.
*Note about mailing stuff: If you've never done something like this before - here's what you do. Go to the Post Office. Pick up two Flat Rate Priority envelopes - these are made out of something that feels like paper but is much stronger. These are provided free of charge by the USPS. Yarn isn't fragile or heavy so you will waste money if you get a box. Put the yarn in the envelope - but don't close it yet! When you are with the clerk - explain that you need to include an envelope with postage for return mail on it. Make sure to address the second envelope with your address! Once the postage has been paid, put that envelope in with the yarn, seal it up, and send it to us. This should cost $5 to $10 (each way) depending on how you send it.
