But I do have plenty of yarn. Anyone want to buy some so I can pay my rent? Here's some photos and descriptions. Let me know if you need more info. I also have a bunch of Goodwill finds of J Crew sweaters I unraveled that I can sell too.

OK here we go.

This first yarn is from a funky yarn store in San Francisco Called Artfibers. http://www.artfibers.com/
The dark purplish color is called Basque, its 58% silk and 42% Superkid mohair. Its 110 yards, gauge is 18 by 23 =4 inches on #7 needle. The label says 93 yards makes a 1 foot square in stockinette. the pinkish color is called Kyoto. Its 110 yards also, 69% silk, 25% Superkid mohair and 6 % extra fine wool.

The other skeins are from Bouton d'or (or Anny Blatt) and they areboth KSAR. Half wool, half camel hair. So lusciously soft. 91 yards 50grams. Here's a link to see them http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Bouton_dOr_Yarn-Ksar_Yarn-2208.html

These are all on the $12-14 price range.

Next is a bunch of Dale of Norway. Theres some full skeins and a bunch of little leftovers. Some are Daletta, Heilo or Tiur. All are 100% wool. I guess I would call it sport weight or sock weight. Good on size 2 or 3 needles. I can wrap the skeins around my 3 foot long table to see exactly how many yards are in in each little blob.

OK now this is two skeins (but I also have a hat I made that doesn't fit anyone that I can rip out) of this Dream Baby from Plymouth. It's 50% acrylic microfiber and 50% nylon. So its soft and strechy. Good for baby socks or hats or whatever. 183 yards, 50 grams, recommended needle size is 6 but I used smaller than that. It's like a sport wiehgt. Its a verigated blue, green and pink.

Next I got some KP dancing that I just had a hard time knitting with it. Too elastic. I got 3 skeins of it in this verigated greenish, blueish, orangy, yellowish color. 253 yards needles size 1-3, its sock yarn. http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Yarn_List.aspx I think the color is called two step.

Then I have 2 skeins of KP Sock Landscape. I don't think they sell this anymore. 192 yards, needle size 1-3, sock yarn. 100% merino wool so its not superwash. Its a verigated color. I think its called New England foliage or something like that. I love this yarn but I need rent more.
