Destash!

Alright, I'm biting the bullet and destashing. I'm also linking to this post from the KR Forums. Prices are negotiable, and do not include shipping/mailing costs. Prefer Paypal, but will accept personal check in the mail. However, yarn will not be shipped until the check has cleared. Yarns are from a smoke-free home, and stored in plastic containers. I do have a long haired cat and make no guarantees that he has somehow spared this yarn from cat hair when he's gotten it everywhere else.

Comments: almost a boucle. The colors are great, and I had no problems with the yarn, but am not going to make that project anymore and have no other use for it. Handwash or dry clean.

I'm very interested in some of your items... how do I let you know? I have a paypal account so no problem with that.
I would take the Shine, the Shimmer, the Alpaca Cloud, the Cape Cod Sock Landscape, and the Vineyard Simple Stripes.

Hi Kathleen! You can email me directly at kadiddly at yahoo dot com, or PM me as kadiddly on the forums at www.knittersreview.com/forum. The Cape Cod is already spoken for, but the rest of it is available. Hope to hear from you soon!
