As I mentioned a few posts ago, it's time to think hard about my stash. I went through every single last ball of yarn I have and made a big pile of things that HAVE TO GO!
I was thinking about grouping things to enhance their marketability and then thought better of it. Let's just say there's a bit of everything, but nothing handpainted or hand dyed--that stuff is gold and I want to keep it all. Things are a bit tough financially right now at the And She Knits Too household, but they ain't that bad. And I feel like prior stashing in good times allows for current knitting happiness now.
Important details stuff:
- All prices are in US Dollars and I'll invoice you via Paypal.
- I'm also willing to entertain trades in lieu of purchases. But only if I know you; sorry but I've been burned and I don't want to be again.
- Shipping is NOT included in the price. Canada Post is not all that great at setting out prices that make it easy for me to give you a sense of what shipping will cost. But expect to pay a minimum of $5. I will send out a proper quote for your approval before we seal any deals.
- Unless indicated otherwise, all of these yarns are new and unused. All were stored in a smoke and pet free home.
I also have a few tools that need new homes. I'll do those first:
SOLD! Denise Needles Set - $40: Complete set of points, cords, connectors and caps, and a second set of cords. The case is a bit worn but everything is fine. They're just not my thing.
SOLD! Umbrella Swift - $25: I bought a new wooden one this year with a prize certificate I won at Lettuce Knit. I've had this swift a long time and it works just fine. If you don't have a swift, you're really missing out. This one comes with a plastic storage sleeve.
SOLD! Noro Kureyon - 11 skeins - $75: Colour 126, Lot E.
SOLD! Rowan Yorkshire Tweed dk - 10 skeins - $50: Colour Lime Leaf (348), Lot 27H4
SOLD! Rowan Bamboo Tape - 10 skeins - $60: Colour Chalk (703), Lot 61074
SOLD! Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran - 3 skeins - $25: Colour Hero (411), Lot 3E5
King Yarns Kelly - 2 skeins - $7: Enough for a Baby Bolero! Colour 50, Lot 8526
SOLD! Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed - 3 skeins -$20: Colour Beach (122), Lot 230
SOLD! Elizabeth Lavold Silky Wool - 2 skeins - $10: Colour 16, Lot 1210
Briggs & Little Heritage Worsted - 2 skeins - $10: Colour Plum (58), Lot 619.
Rowan Biggy Print - 3 skeins - $25: Colour Cookie (244), Lot 10E1 (they're wily--never used, but unwilling to stay pretty in the skein)
SOLD! Samuel Lumb Wool Tweed Worsted - 1 Cone=2000m - $50: Apparently Samuel Lumb mills was around in England making yarn for nearly 200 years before they had to close because they couldn't get fire insurance for the building. I was also told they milled yarn for Rowan. I have another cone of the same yarn--it's oiled for machine skeining so has to be washed after you knit the garment, or skeined and washed before. It's a more rugged yarn, meaning for most it wouldn't be a next to your skin sweater. I would compare it to Noro Kureyon or a shetland wool. It's really deep purple and tweedy.
SOLD! Tivoli Aran Superwash - 10 skeins - $45: Colour 962 Lot 5679 (one ball was started and ripped out).
SOLD! Tivoli Aran Superwash - 9 skeins - $40: Colour 977 Lot 9814 (one ball was started and ripped out).
SOLD! Fiddlesticks Wool Silk Lace - Almost 1 skein - $10: Colour Black, Lot unknown. I would say there's 600m here. You can also have the pictured shawl I started to rip back if you want. Note to self: I don't like knitting lace.
SOLD! Elann Peruvian Highland Wool - 8 skeins - $15: Colour Black (500), Lot 647
