Please Vote!

I have been thinking really hard about the next swap. I would like to consider your opinion in the matter. I have installed a poll on the Side Bar. Please go vote.
Here is what I have been thinking about. I have enjoyed the surprise that this swap offered of not knowing where your apron was coming from. However, it has been stressful trying to keep track of all the loose ends (for me and for those that still don't have an apron).
So I would like to know what your opinion is.
Should I do this next swap the same as the Spring swap where your partner is a surprise,
Should I swap everyone out one on one so that you know who your partner is and give to the one you receive from?
The Poll is open through the 31st so please quickly vote.

Don't worry about the work load for me. Either way has is pluses and drawbacks. I just want to know what people's preferences are. I am working on some new rules that will help with the delinquent aprons.

both have merits for me.
I liked the surprise of the new partner, but I also would like to get to know my current partner better.

either way works. so whatever way is easier for you.

My first thought - whatever is easier for you. My second, surprise is good.

gosh, I hate to 'vote' because what I think would be best is what makes life easier for you. You've been a gracious host but I know this is hard and time consuming.
I think all of us would agree that you should do what is easiest for you. And that includes asking for help from us as participants.

I voted for surprise, but I think that you should go with what makes your life easier. We can certainly help out in some way if we can.

Could we switch around? I now make an apron for the person who made me one? Kind of a thank you apron!!! Anyone who didn't receive an apron could just be paired up? I am willing to help organize it. It might be fun to make a thank you apron!!

You have done a wonderful job with the first swap and I liked the surprise element. But I think you should do what is easiest for you also. Either way will be lots of fun.

Thank you again for doing these swaps.

Well my own buddy from the last swap (she received mine) had some good points. Yarnigrass said we could help and that is a good idea. Whatever is easiest and I would love input from you and the others because I am really considering hosting a dish towel/tea towel swap. I have had a lot of interest in my post about towels. I can't wait till tomorrow!

I really like Tracy's idea but it could be a bit of work. So, going back to your original question...

Although I like surprises, I think I'm leaning in favour of having a pair and we swap with each other so we can get to know our swap partners better :) (cos that's why I like these things ;-D)
