One of the first groups I took part in when I joined Ravelry almost 3 years ago (yes, time is flying by...) was the Friendship Square Exchange group.
Each month, we swap a 6x6" (15x15cm) knitted or crocheted square. And each month we have a different theme. You can swap every month or only when you are inspired. I haven't missed a single month yet, even if some months are more inspiring than others I have always come up with something! This also means I have a lot of squares in my box right now (some generous swappers even send a bonus square). I should really really really consider a sewing session soon (I hate the "sewing" part going with knitting and crochet) and show off all the wonderful squares I received. I love this swap and postage remains reasonable even when mailing international which is most often the case as I live in France.
In March I received a lovely flowery square from Liontigerbear (March theme was Sender's Favorite).
April theme is "Pocket square". I have already made my square ahead of time. The square is a basic circular double crochet block, the pocket a half circle made in double crochet too (I love double crochet).
In the pocket is hiding a little cutie.
This adorable tiny girl bear is adapted from Bear Christmas Tree Decorations.
Want to swap too? You are welcome. And it's still time to sign up for April!
