clean up clean out on offer one

This yarn is now GONE - happy knitting Sue!

spun, originally uploaded by Soozs.

OK this one isn't exactly a giveaway, though it won't cost you anything like the value of the yarn. I have around 900gms of Cleckheaton Merino Spun, a single plied 12 ply weight yarn that's 80% wool, 20% nylon. I have 2.9 skeins of dark aubergine, 1 lilac, 1 green, 2 skeins of each grey and red. I also have the original pattern book for this yarn.

I bought a big lot of this in grey to knit my spun jacket, and had a lot left over because, I can't explain why it would use so much less yarn than it should. I also had several balls of other colourways in the same yarn because I liked them all so much. I've knit quite a few hats (like this, this and this) and other bits and the stash never seems to diminish! I planned to use them to make a stripe felted market bag, but realistically it is stupid to store almost a kilo of wool for who knows how many years till I maybe get around to it.

I'm not really looking to sell it, but a little something in return would be nice. Make me an offer for a swap or something you can post to my new address so I don't have to pack, sort or cart it! Email soozs[dot]com[at]gmail[dot]com

The yarn does look very nice. I love the red and the grey ones. I dont know what to offer you for a swap though so you need to give me some sort of idea. Ok hope to hear from you.
