October Sign Ups

WOW...can you believe that October is almost here already? I hope everyone had a wonderful September Swap. I know my month was extremely busy and Becky your package is going into the mail this week!

As usual if you want to swap in October then comment here and I will add you to the October Swap list...The theme for this month will be a lot of fun because you have a huge selection with the stores all decked out for the Halloween holiday.

October: Halloween is at the end of the month so I think doing a Halloween theme will work out. Some trivia: Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death, although I love black and I do not associate it with death at all. Jack o’ lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candles in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday. Pumpkins come in white, blue, and green. Tootsie Rolls were the first wrapped penny candy in America. 90% of parents admit to sneaking goodies from their kids’ Halloween trick-or-treat bags.
And a cute Joke: How do you fix a jack-o-lantern?
[Ans: With a pumpkin patch. LOL LOL LOL]

You will send your partner:
1. A pattern related to any Halloween decoration or theme or something with a fall theme if your partner does not like Halloween.
2. The yarn to complete your project
3. All the notions required to complete the project
4. An orange or black or black and orange pair of socks or anklets
5. A bag of candy [wrapped]
6. A surprise Halloween or Autumn gift that you think your partner might like

Have fun and remember the package needs to be mailed by the end of the month and you must include at least all the above items to swap!!!
