We moved house 3 weeks ago now and whilst I’m happy to have finished the seemingly endless unpacking it’s still a little strange getting used to living in a much smaller space. Imagine trying to cram the possessions of 2 die hard collectors previously spread throughout a 5 bedroomed house with cellars into a 3 bedroomed apartment converted from a Victorian bakery and you’ve got the idea.
I thought I’d done a pretty good job of hiding the true extent of my years of yarn stashing from Sam but when he asked me in the stunned tones of someone who can never understand what it is to knit ‘why do you have so much yarn?’ I found myself stuck for a truly convincing answer. I have no idea.
I got rid of a lot of yarn ~ or so I thought ~ about 6 months before the house went on the market but since them it seems to have ‘gone forth and multiplied’. Not just the odd ball either, I mean packs of some yarns and in the case of a particular shade of Rowans’ All Season’s Cotton, about 18 balls AND the back of a cardigan. Who am I kidding? I’m never going to knit this lot up, I very rarely knit for myself as I’m too busy designing for work, so I’ve taken the plunge and am selling it off. Yes it pains me to do it but it’s better that it goes to the home of someone nimbled fingered and caring enough to lovingly knit it up rather than keep it crammed in airtight boxes where it all currently lives.
So if you fancy a bit of a bargain I’ve added it to my Ravelry page here. If you’re interested in a yarn and you’re a Ravelry user then message me through Ravelry. If you’re not on Ravelry, don’t worry you can email me through the website here.
I’ll be adding more yarn to the page once I’ve photographed it all but for now enjoy browsing
