Hopefully the post title will get some attention. I was busy, busy, busy this weekend. Most of that occurred on Sunday when I re-arranged my knitting and stitching "stuff." All my yarn, tools, etc. was upstairs in our bedroom, but the totes and shopping bags, etc. were piling up and it was a huge mess and a pain to try to find anything. My stitching stuff has been downstairs in the office room. I decided to switch things around.
First I switched books which ended up being a BIG workout. Downstairs with knitting books, upstairs with stitching books. Numerous trips up and down with arms loaded. Yikes I've got a lot of books! Next was moving all my stitching patterns, some threads, etc. upstairs and bringing the yarn downstairs. All of this necessitated looking at things I had not seen in years and I found a bunch of yarn that I know will not be used by me anytime soon.
So here goes. Please take a look and if there is anything you would like, let me know. First one to respond wins!!
First up is some yarn I bought probably 25 or more years ago!
The chocolate brown is 100% merino superwash by Schoeller Esslinger. There is one 100 gram skein (which may be a slightly different shade) and then seven 50 gram skeins (plus a bit).
The top 3 skeins are a mix. The two on the left are rayon/nylon/acrylic. The one on the right is wool/cotton/acrylic/nylon.
The final yarn (for now anyway):
The bottom left turquoise skein is 50 grams of Martha Stewart roving wool.
The Lamb's Pride (bottom right) is 113 grams (approx. 190 yards) and is 85% wool/15% mohair.
The cones and spools at the top are all cotton (thinking they could be used on a loom???).
I also came across some needles that I do not want:
Some double pointed needles in various sizes that (I believe) were my aunt's. I prefer my bamboo needles. And then two sets of Knitter's Pride interchangeable circular needles. I bought one set while on vacation and found that they didn't connect properly (could easily have been operator issues - lol). The company sent me a replacement set. I just don't like them! I've tried them but I must twist needles as I knit, because the joins come un-done.
OK - that's the extent of the cleanout for now. There may be more yarn, I'm not sure. I ran out of steam late in the afternoon. If you see anything you would like, please e-mail me. I'll be happy to mail stuff out with a thank you note for helping me make more room for my sock yarn!!
