>I’ve been having a long hard think about my stash recently. I know most knitters would say that you can never have too much yarn but I have – for me.

It was brought home to me with Lady Eleanor as I’m enjoying this yarn & pattern & it’s growing fast, very fast. Whereas the Snowflake baby blanket took about 3 months purely because I hated knitting it. I didn’t enjoy the texture of the yarn, was extremely bored with the basic pattern & it became a chore. It is a fantastic baby yarn but not for me. I don’t have a baby & don’t plan to have anymore so am very happy that it’s going to a new home.

I’m being sensible & have started to go through my stash & getting rid of yarn that I either no longer like (masses of Snowflake – I didn’t realise I had so much!), like but can’t find the perfect pattern for or books that I’ll never use.

Since the weekend I have either sold or swapped 1900g of yarn or 38 x50g balls + a Rowan book which I didn’t use. I have two beautiful balls of sock yarn heading my way & enough money to pay for the
320g Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed

There is enough yarn to do either the Zipped Jacket (ages 2 or 3) or The Lined Coat (ages 12-18 mths or 18-24 mths) featured in the tweed collection which is also available.

I’m open to offers or swaps for sock yarn.

[19/5/6 – A swap has been arranged & neither book nor yarn are available any more]
