Hey there! In an effort to reduce my stash and make enough money to justify staying home awhile longer I’ve decided to dye up some yarn and roving in an attempt to sell it on Etsy. A surprising amount of raw project wool, etc. has amassed over the years. Does yarn procreate? Early morning insomnia provided time to even make up a silly little label. I don’t know if anybody will even look at it. After all, there are pages and pages of hand dyed yarns out on Etsy, not to mention the professional on-line enablers
where I spend my childrens’ college funds who we all love. See sidebar under “Shopping” for a full list. My little stash reduction here won’t impact them. So far only one item is listed, but once the girls head down the road on that magic yellow bus the I’ll put out some sock yarn too. If it’s still out there in a few weeks then I’ll pull it from Etsy and list it on eBay.
My neat and organized military-type husband is relieved at the thought of less “clutter”. Although last night when A3 spilled her milk the first thing he rescued from the spreading pool was my ball of yarn. So either he’s learned to place some intrinsic value to fiber or else he didn’t want to hear me swear.
Not much else to report. The dreaded cold has spread and worsened so public exposure will be minimized this week. It’s that wonderful time of year when all of the little germ frigates carry home unsavory diseases. Cheers!
