As long as it is 100 percent nonwool, it qualifies. Interweave is asking participants to send only new yarns to their pals--let's show a little love to our local yarns shops and craft stores this summer. If you participated in the One Skein Secret Pal event or the Spin to Knit Handspun Secret Pal event, then you'll know it works pretty much the same way. Registration deadline is May 1 and pals will be sent out by May 15. Register online at: http://www.interweave.com/knit/books/No_Sheep/swap/nosheepsignup.asp
Some participants may be using this knitalong as a forum for publicly thanking their pals and posting photos of their nonwool skeins (which we encourage--it's fun to see pics of the new yarns).
