circular swap questions, lists
I love crocheting, it's my favorite hobby. Can I make you a scarf/cowl/sweater/lap blanket to keep you wintery-warm!?
Absolutely! I am not much of a cowl wearer, but otherwise, bring on all the homemade goodies, especially since yarn-craft and I do not get along. 
How do you feel about knit socks? (P...

swap info

Books:  Goodreads , Bookmooch (very neglected), useful discussion hereabouts
Other Stuff: Amazon , Etsy , Sock Dreams, Think...
