Oh, this clearing out and simplifying lark is so addictive. Almost as addictive as the hoarding itself - ha ha!
Seriously though, it is nice to be able to see the bottom of some of my baskets and not to feel overwhelmed by all the contents that needed to be used. I can actually see myself using what is left. This week it's mostly the knitting baskets that were gone through and here's what I have for sale.
A long time ago I had visions of knitting myself this cardi from A Yorkshire Fable:
so I got the wool (Rowan Chunky Tweed) in red:
with a contrasting ball of slate grey/black:
and it sat there and sat there until this week that is. In all there are eleven balls (ten reds). It originally cost around £50. I can split it by the way.
Two years ago I knit the French Market Bag from Knitty for my sister in New Zealand and then rashly bought some of the same colour for myself. Needless to say I never got around to it. I have five skeins of this gorgeous wool:
It knits at around 18sts to 4ins and can be used for a child's jersey or a tank top. Cost £20 when I bought it. I also have a green skein if anyone does wants to knit the bag (pic a few posts back).
Last summer Amber decided she wanted to knit a jersey for herself but the interest didn't last long! She bought six skeins (or was it seven) of this lovely Colinette colourway:
I will need to unravel the bit she knit unless some poor soul wants to take it on. Cost around £25 new.
I also have some little balls of plant dyed wool left over. They make lovely pressies for children and the colours are divine:
I'm selling one ball for $4 each but will discount for more than two.
Also have two balls of plant dyed and handspun fibre (they're bigger than the above balls):
Selling for $6 each and there are three little skeins of the same for $4 each:
Found the following knitting books that I will never use again:
Apart from my hand dyed wool please feel free to make me an offer for the other stuff. I know I ought to say what I want but my brain's a bit tired this afternoon - sorry.
