These are a lot of little odds and ends I'd like to pass on to new owners. If you like, email me at meangirl at comcast dot net and I'll hook you up! I HAVE TWO CATS. These yarns aren't covered in cat hair or anything, but the animals do live here. Click to see them bigger. All yarns are sold on a first come, first served basis. $3 US shipping for each order and I'll combine shipping if you buy more than one. (If you're international, I'll have to figure out what the shipping actually is.)

The following yarns come together in bags, but if you want them individually let me know.

Beatrice is knitted, frogged and rewound - full skeins. 40g each leftover of each Wool Cotton. 35g left of Merino DK. 25g of Cashmerino Aran. $50 of yarn originally - $27 for the lot of it.

These were wound double into cakes to be used with the Misti Alpaca in a fair isle project. 50 Palette in Blue, not double-wound.

If you've made it all the way down here, you deserve a treat. Look what Angela did with my arch-shaped socks pattern! Much prettier, don't you think! Maybe we can get someone to translate this for us into English!

Hi, Jen,

Being somewhat inspired and needing another excuse to procrastinate on studying Econ, I jumped over to Alta Vista's Babelfish and "translated" Angela's site.

Cord Guidances: Elbow Socks

*shrug* Well, it's a start! :-D Either way, your arch-shaped socks are lovely.
