of spinning and sales

I've gotten pretty hooked on this spinning thing. Lots of fun, turning fluffy stuff into yarn.

Sheep Shed "sunset"  roving

(Roving from the Sheep Shed. Two-ply in the center, navajo plied then knit on the right.)

One small problem. I don't have a spinning wheel and I really want one :) (Julia has been kind enough to loan me hers, but it is high time that I think about returning it!!)

Unfortunately, as a new home owner and part time grad student, there is no spinning wheel budget at the moment. What's a girl to do?


Yep, I'm selling some yarn. I love all my yarn. But I have to admit that I have far more of it than I will ever knit. So, my loss is your gain!

Good stuff, too ... a couple of kinds of Rowan, some Fleece Artist sock yarn, Ultra Alpaca, and more. All at 25% off retail rates :)

Stash sale

There are two ways to check out the goods --
Click over to my stash sale set
check out my trade/sell page on Ravelry

If you are interested in anything, email me at aswiminknits AT yahoo DOT com, or message me on Ravelry. You can leave a comment on Flickr too, although I don't check it as obsessively regularly as I check my email and Ravelry message box.

If you know anyone who might be in the market for some new yarn, feel free to send them this way :)

  • Ooh, what kind of wheel do you have in mind??

  • Well I can't think of any better of a reason to sell stash then to buy a spinning wheel! Unfortunately I don't need any stash enhancement.
