View Full Version : Big Destash! Nice Stuff!

03-01-2008, 09:21 AM
I have reached a point in my knitting career where I look at my stash and say "I have too much yarn." Plus, my mother is coming into town next week and I don't need any more reasons for her to think I have issues. Plus, I could use some extra money. I have bought lots of high-quality yarn, but I just don't need it all. Like I now have at least 2 other 100% silk projects in queue. Or I have some nice stuff leftover from another project. Or that sweater I was going to make my father has fallen through. Or I just have too much sock yarn! What I'm trying to say is there is nothing wrong with any of this yarn. Oh, except I do want to say that the Tofutsies, Soxie, 1 skein of the Malabrigo, and the Lisa Souza have been swatched (no more than 2"x2"), . Also the silver colourmart lace (they called it "light dk" or "heavy fingering" or something like that, but it looks like a heavy lace weight to me) is a little stiff. I was disappointed with it when I got it so they sent the smaller light blue cone as consolation, which is much softer. I have no idea what that one is or how much yardage is in it.

Okay, all prices include shipping in the U.S. If you live somewhere else, I'd be happy to ship and we can work out the extra cost for shipping. Okay, here goes, click for bigger pics:

Colourmart lace. The silver one is very shiny and has at least 1100 yards, 100% silk, 150 grams I think. Looks like a heavy fingering to me. Is 2-ply. The light-blue one is also 2-ply. It's soft. I think it may be their cashmere. $18 for both. -GONE!

Malabrigo. What has the world come to when I'm destashing my Malabrigo. I bought it in sweater quantity for me, but it pills too much in a sweater for my tastes. Beautiful color, though. Dark tone-on-tone burgundy. "Burgundy" is the color, actually. 5 skeins, 100 grams each, 200+ yards each ball, $40 - GONE!

Tofutsies sock yarn. A white, brown, and black color. 100 grams, 425 meters, $10. - GONE!

My favorite work-horse yarn, Plymouth Encore. 75% acrylic, 25% wool, machine washable. Each skein is 100 grams, 200 yards. 6 skeins of the medium dark gray (color 0389), 2 of the off-black (color 0520). There is enough for at least a 44" mens sweater here. I know because the other 4 skeins I bought of the light gray nearly finished a 45" sweater for my father (until i realized the arms were too tight :teehee: and didn't feel like doing them again). $35 - GONE!

Lisa Souza sock yarn, 100% wool, superwash, in color Marsquake. 100 grams. This is a pretty color; I just have too much sock yarn. $10 - GONE!

Nice, nice, nice! This stuff is so nice. I originally bought enough for a slim top for myself, but decided I wanted a clapotis instead. I made a slightly smaller clapotis and this is what's left over. 1 and 9/10 of a ball (I used 2 and 1/10 of a ball for the clap). 100 grams, 250 meters each, 50% wool, 50% silk, hand dyed in the color "Nova Scotia", 2 ply, it is beautiful. I generally don't knit the same yarn in the same color twice, but if you guys don't buy it, I won't be that sad. Retails for $30 a ball. $40 for these:
