A Show Me Your Stash thread here at KH got me to :figureditout: thinking......dangerous thing to do, eh?

So I spent an hour...going over my Ravelry Stash...and put over 100 into the FOR SALE (http://www.ravelry.com/people/ArtLady/stash/trade) category! BTW: the listing is current. If something sells, I immediately pull it out.

Although the category is technically WILL SELL or TRADE...I don't want to trade.

I'm a motivated seller. :wink:
If you bundle 3 offerings in their entirety, I'll come down in price!

No, didn't mark prices. I only got as far as sorting my "must keep" yarns from my "should part with" yarns! So there are now 121 batches that I'm destashing! Message me at Rav for price(s) on yarns that you're interested in.

I'll have to peek at other trade/sell stashes to see if most folks put prices in the notes section. I never thought of it. It's a daunting task to contemplate!

I just mailed yarn to a knitter in Australia! Wow!

have you removed the ones you sold?

Yes. The minute that payment hits my Paypal...I yank it out of the FOR SALE folder, and move it to the SOLD folder.

But I don't remove it UNTIL payment is made. :thumbsup:

Payment method?

What do you recommend for stash building...I have several cascade worsted-ish, and cheap cotton yarn.

Paypal or money order.

Stash building? Cascade 220 is a wonderful yarn! I've never seen a Cascade 220 sweater that didn't look professional and beautiful. Cascade Superwash is also great.

Noro Silk Garden and Noro Kureyon...both great if you love variegated colorways. Noro Cash Iroha and Noro Iro: fantastic!

Tweeds are a great staple IMO. I adore Berrocco Blackstone Tweed and Rowan Silky Tweed are great stash builders.

Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool is fantastic. It's been a best seller for years. It wears well and feels great. Warm but never too hot.

Another fav of mine is Black Water Abbey worsted. It's not a softie yarn, but after proper blocking I can comfortably wear it right next to my skin. It does wonderful cabled sweaters!

Yarn choices are so personal to each individual. For sweater knitting, spend as much as you can comfortably afford for the yarn. A quality yarn is worth it, especially for sweaters.

Cascade brand is noted for being high quality and affordable at the same time.

Yes...I put a lot of additional yarn collections into my De-Stash! And I think there are a lot of choices, and good prices! I try to beat WEBS lowest prices that reflect their 25% off when total purchase exceeds $120. And I usually beat their closeout prices by a long shot.
