Pass Along Scarf!

I'm trying to start a cool mail art project, the Pass-Along Scarf.

If you would like to participate, you will receive 1 sloppily hand-knitted scarf in the mail. Your mission will be to add onto the scarf in some way - you can knit, crochet, sew things, paint, ravel/unravel, or what have you.

The next step is to photograph yourself wearing the improved-upon scarf and send me the pictures (aleeeacorn@gmail.com) so that I can start assembling them into some sort of bloggy type thing.

The last step is to pass along the scarf to someone new!

Please email me with your mailing address, and we can get this party started.

Jeez. This is sucky.

I can see that this community up and died, which makes me feel awfully depressed. I think the main problem is that many people who love to mail random things to other people don't get to see this community. I had a lot of younger people interested, which isn't a problem in itself, but I'd like people in their 20s and 30s to start joining and posting.

I dont give a shit who joins, but I like to moderate this to make sure that people aren't joining who give others the shaft. I've done way too may "trades" in the mail that ended up being one sided.

If you read this post and you have any ideas, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know. Myspace, other communities on LJ, whatever. I dont want to bother people with annoying "Join my Community" posts, but in the same breath, I want people to join and actually do some trades.

Please contact me with any thoughts!!!
