Please Take Some of this Yarn Off My Hands

June 27th, 2008 | View Comments

Update July 12, 2008: Please see this post for updated stash sale info.

So…what have I been up to this last month? Not hiding from my fellow knitters, that is for sure. I did a very cool project for Lauren at LaBeana Bags, which you may see the fruits of shortly. And I am in the last stages of:

And that last item is what bwings us togevaaaaaaah today.

Let’s face it, I have no use for bulky wool in Texas. So I beg of y’all who have actual winters to please take some of it off my hands. Along with some orphan yarn and yarn that I’m just tired of looking at. All yarn has been stored in drawers or plastic ziploc bags in a smoke-free, pet-free home.

If you’re interested in any of the yarn listed below or if you have any questions, please send me an e-mail. Prices listed are in USD and include first-class shipping to the contiguous 48 states.

Handpainted Yarn in Stone Blue

Bulky Wool, Handpainted
100% wool
Bulky, thick/thin single
$15 for the lot (PENDING)

Part of one hank was swatched and ripped out. Others have never been knit.

There’s over 230g here, probably around 340 yards.

Handpainted Yarn in Stone Blue

Bulky Wool, Handpainted
100% wool

Was knit into a scarf and frogged. Yarn has been washed and dried and is ready to go again!

Approximately 400 yards.

Manos del Uruguay, Colorway 116

Manos del Uruguay
100% wool
$12 for the lot (PENDING)

The two hanks on the left (approx. 120g) were salvaged from this scarf, washed, and are ready to knit again.

Two hanks on the right (approx. 120g) have never been knit.

About 340 yards total. This is colorway 116.

Manos del Uruguay

Manos del Uruguay
100% wool

Part of ball was used for a fabulous scarf; this is what’s left over.

There’s a little over 85g here, enough to make a small hat or a small pair of mittens. Or felted flowers!

Laceweight, sock yarn, and more after the jump!

Jaggerspun Zephyr in color Cinnabar

Jaggerspun Zephyr
50% silk, 50% merino

This is the leftover yarn from the Curved Shawl with Diamond Edging.

I started with a full cone weighing just over a pound, now it weighs just under a pound (including the paper cone in the center).

I’d guess there’s about 4000 yards left, at least.

The color is Cinnabar.

Knitpicks Essential in color African Violet

Knitpicks Essential
75% superwash wool, 25% nylon
Sock weight

The color is African Violet.

Brand-new and un-touched!

But it hasn’t found its pattern soulmate yet, and I’m starting to think it will have more luck in your stash.

Dalegarn Baby Ull in white and royal blue

Dalegarn Baby Ull
100% superwash wool
Fingering weight
$4 each or buy all three balls for $10

Colors shown are #5545 and #0010.

I have a second skein of the blue.

It was meant for a hat to match the Anemoi Mittens, but now I have no need for wool hats.

Jamieson's Spindrift

Jamieson’s Spindrift
100% shetland wool
Fingering weight

Colors shown from left to right, top to bottom:

Jade (#787). This is a VERY bright green.

Baby Pure DK

Baby Pure DK
80% acrylic, 20% nylon

What I have here is just over 90g, so less than a full skein.

It’s probably about 280 yards, enough for a hat/booties set or a toy.

I have extra copies of the sold-out Fall 2006 issue of Interweave Knits and the Spring/Summer 2006 issue of Vogue Knitting. The latter is still in its plastic wrap!

Will ship media mail if you don’t buy yarn too.

I also have an extra copy of a trial issue of Cook’s Country magazine that I will be happy to throw in free with any order. Recipes include Hearty Beef Stew, Oven-Fried Chicken, Quaker Bonnet Biscuits, and Ambrosia Cake.

If you buy over the weekend, it will ship out on Monday. Anything bought after Monday will ship out in about two weeks, after my wedding (eeeee)! Back now! Things will ship immediately! Questions? Contact me!
