    Hi all,

    I'm cleaning things out here at home, and I haven't knitted in ages. I'm looking to get rid of some yarn; and rather than giving it to goodwill or someplace like that, I thought a real crafter might use it. I have:

    Ballybrae brand 100% virgin unscoured wool in dover white tweed. It is worsted knitting weight. Approximately 400grams or 4 skeins. I'll also add in the partially finished Aran sweater and directions if you want.

    1 skein light weight burgundy sock wool

    I skein natural, undyed brown wool, slightly heavier than worsted weight

    3 skeins Nature Spun brand white, 100% worsted weight wool.

    Let me know if you want it. I'm limiting myself to very small projects, namely scarfs for Coats for Kids, and none of these really lend themselves to that.

    I have a friend who is a fabulous knitter/crocheter. I would take it for her. How much would it cost to ship?

    You've got it WW. I'll check on shipping. It should be fairly cheap, since it is light. It is very nice wool. I'm glad to have someone who can use it.

    Shipping should be under ten dollars.

    Sorry, I sent it off on Monday, I think. I had even found some yarn I had hand-dyed with brazilwood. I had taken a natural dye class, and never used the yarn I had dyed.

    While I'm going through things, and cleaning the closets, I will probably end up posting some more interesting things.....keep looking back to see.

    WW, let me know when you get the yarn. I just want to know if it got there.
