Hello all!

I am going to be starting on a project for a friend that will require a VERY small amount of various colors of yarn.

I am looking for any color of yarn that will felt, approx one to one and a half yards.

As I am a new knitter, I don't really have anything to trade, but am willing to Pay Pal you some $ to cover the cost of mailing.

If you can help out I would really appreciate it! PM for address!

I don't think a few yards will cost that much to mail.

I've got some ready to send to you so I'll get to the PO tomorrow. I'm in southern CA so you should get them by early next week I'd imagine. ;) Each piece is probably 6-10 yards.

I can mail you 4 different yarns, all wool, that will felt nicely. I will send you 3-4 yards of each, some are variegated. Hope that will help.

just pm'd you...

I pm'd you. I have the scissors out and am ready to start cutting the yarn!!!!!

Thanks to those of you that have PM'ed me. I have responded to all that have messaged me with the address, but I seem to have trouble sending PM's for some reason. If you have not gotten a response with my address, please email me at jenarita@gmail.com!

Thanks so much!

Bah! I wanted to get them mailed today, but didn't. I'll try tomorrow.

:happydance: The yarn is in the mail! :happydance:

I'll send you some too -- I think I only have 3 colors that will felt. PMme w/ your address and I'll put it in the mail!

I have some scrap leftovers of a few balls of Noro Kureyon. I took the ends and felted them together as I wound it into a new ball. There's about 80+ yards in black, gray, brown and a mustard color. I have no use for it, it's yours if you want it! I don't even know why I bothered winding it, but maybe this is the reason why! lol PM me with your addy if you'd like it.

any particular weight? I have some bulky and one worsted...

03-07-2007, 03:58 PM
Any weight will be fine! I can use them all!

Thanks so much! Off to PM you now!

Thank you so much for the beautiful yarns I have received so far...

Got one package that I am not sure who to match up to, that had the beautiful Kureyon, Cascade, and more! Thank you so much! It is all so beautiful!

Thanks again!

That could be me. :oops: :oops: I was in a hurry to leave the house and did not include a note in the package. If not------then mine is on the way from Illinois.

Mine is boxed up and ready to go. DH is taking it to be mailed tomorrow. And I did remember to put a note in mine although I usually forget! :teehee:

I'd be happy to send you some yarn. Send me a PM with your address and what you're looking for if you would please. I've got so much yarn!

I was given lots and lots and lots of acrylic... some of it is just a few yards... if you can use it, it's probably over a hundred yards total, but in small amounts of lots of colors

I missed that... :oops: sorry!

I just stumbled on this section of the forum! Glad I did! I have lots of colours of Galway and Patons Classic wool left from felting projects. I'd be happy to send some along. And no worry about reimbursing mailing. It won't be that much. I'm glad to share. :happydance: samm

Hi Jenn! I mailed it today. Not a lot, but I hope it helps. samm

Hello all!!!

I JUST realized almost a month later that I never came back and posted/pm'ed a thank you to everyone!

I got so many beautiful yarns, and the project is coming along nicely!!!

I want to thank each person that contributed!!!

Unfortunately, my husband managed to not follow my directions, of "place any packages that come for me aside for me to open later" and opened all of them and put all the yarn in a pile for me, and threw away all of the packaging materials. So, I have no idea who sent me what. (in his defense, he thought that he was doing the right thing by minimizing the clutter laying around when I came home)

Thank you again!

I will post pics when the project is complete!!!
