One Skein Secret Pal Exchange is up!

Jaime from Interweave Press just sent along the following about the One Skein Secret Pal Exchange:

Welcome to the One Skein Secret Pals exchange! This is an event for knitters and crocheters of all ages who understand unbridled yarn lust—the joy of receiving a single new skein of fabulous yarn! We are celebrating the launch of One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit and Crochet by Leigh Radford by starting a new kind of secret pal exchange—the single skein exchange. The idea is simple: sign up via e-mail by May 1, 2006, and receive two skeins of yarn, one per month, in the mail during June and July 2006 from your anonymous secret pal; in return, you mail two skeins in two months to your assigned secret pal. In the last month, August, you finally release your identity and give your secret pal a single knitted or crocheted item made with a skein of yarn

I’ve signed up; won’t you? For the spinners in the audience, you can, if you like, request to be paired with another spinner. I chose that option myself. I think we’ll have to cook up something like this for Spin To Knit’s release, don’t you? (Imagine the handspun goodness that would be flying through the postal system if we did!)
