The Big Stash Reduction: Phase One

***UPDATED 11/12***

Ok - here we go. I have finally started to attempt to get the craft room under control. You know, so I can actually go in there and craft. :) So, I will be posting yarn and knitting books for sale here over the next however many days. I am hoping to use the money I raise to fund some of the income generating or special needs projects for my sponsor kids in time for Christmas. I'd also like to get this stuff sold and shipped before the Christmas mailing rush because I (actually probably poor Hubby) don't want to stand in long post office lines.

Now for all the "business":

Default shipping will be by priority mail either in one of the envelopes or the boxes, whichever the yarn will fit in. If there is a cheaper way I will try to find it (but I will have to charge a small ammount for the padded envelopes or boxes I will have to buy so it usually ends up being about the same as priority anyway.)

If you would like any of the yarn please email me to let me know. My email addy is in the sidebar in the upper right. Please tell me your shipping address so I can figure out the shipping. Payment is by Paypal only please. I will send you a payment request. I will try to ship within two days of payment.

Non-smoking home. No cats. I do have dogs but they aren't allowed in the craft room.

Oh & please do me a big favor and let your blog readers know I am having a sale. I've tried to make the prices fair and I've got a big selection of stuff coming. Thank you!!

So - here we go! (I will be adding new yarn over the next several days so check back to this post for updates.)

2 skeins of Reynolds Utopia in White #111. Really soft! $6
