Dexter Swap!

Greetings one and all! Let me first just say, welcome to the home of the Dexter Swap, which is designed for fans of the hit showtime series "Dexter", as well as fans of Jeff Lindsay's books. First off, let me just start out by saying that this swap will take place sometime after the holidays, meaning that membership will be closed by the end of December, 2007 ***Edit, Sign ups have been extended and will end on January 30th, 2008!!!!***, the participants list will then be finalized and posted, and matches will be sent out in the second week of February. Please read the guidelines (not that many really) and then send one of the mods the questionnairre! Thanks!

This swap is limited to the United States for the moment. We may go international at another date, but for now, USA only. Thanks.***EDIT: This swap is primarily a knitting/crochet swap, but if you do not do either of these crafts, please join anyway and state specifically which other craft(s) you DO do! This is not meant to exclude any Dexter fan that wants to participate! Thanks! ***

1)All packages should have a total cost of about $40.00 before postage, with half the amount you spend being spent on yarn (or an item of use to whatever craft your partner takes part in). Please, stick as CLOSE to this limit as possible. I know, it's hard...especially if you really like to spoil your partners, but we'd appreciate it if you'd try. ;)

2)All packages that you send should contain a variety of things, both crafty, and otherwise, with both Dexter-related goodies, and other little tidbits that you may want to throw in for good measure. Also, there should be a little note of some sort explaining who you are! :)


1. Full Name:
2. Blog address (preferred, but optional):
3. Shipping address:
4. Do you smoke or have pets?
5. Any allergies?
6. Would you be willing to have an international pal?
7. Would you be willing to be a swap angel* if one is needed?


1. How long have you been knitting/crocheting?

2. What other crafts/hobbies do you do?

3. What is your favorite color?

4. Favorite candy or snack?

5. Whatare your favorite scents?


6. How long have you been watching Dexter?

7. Have you read the books? If not, do you want to?

8. Who is your favorite character (besides Dexter) and why?

9. Who is your least favorite character and why?

10. Does the forensic aspect of the show interest you as well as the
plot, or are you just in it for the story?

*Swap angels will only be used if there is an extenuating circumstance and one (or more participants) do not receive gifts from their swap partners. Your duties would be not only to the original pal assigned, but also to your "rescued" partner. This is not a task to be taken lightly, but I would hope that some of you have enough time to dedicate to more than one person if needed!

Please get your application in as soon as possible. Once you have been accepted into the swap, please check back here or on the Ravelry Board (if you are one of the lucky non-waiters) for further information. Thanks!
