Yarn giveaway

 This is the 'before' pile. I corralled up all the yarn I had and didn't think I was going to use in the next year, and offered it up to friends. I first offered it up to The Good People at Stellar Coffee.
 They made quite a dent in the pile. Reduced it by at least 25%, I'd say. Then another friend came over later that day.
 She made another sizeable dent. With that, I packed up everything into bins.
And took them to the Knits by the Sea's yarn swap a few weekends ago. Only a few balls & skeins went home with other people, the rest came home with me. Rats. I am planning to put them up on Freecycle, then on Used Tofino/Ucluelet, and failing that I'll put up signs in the Co-op (our only grocery store). I don't even know what's in the bins anymore, I am trying to detach myself from them, lest I should change my mind. But no, I have enough yarn to last me several months and I have some projects that I really want to knit that I want to buy yarn for. So there.

  1. So if I sent a self-addressed envelope with say, $5 for shipping to America, would you stuff it with yarn?

  2. I'd love some of that yarn! My stash is getting very tiny because of my daily project.

  3. WHY didn't it occur to me before to offer it up to my friends online? Silly me. Yes, yes you can have some!

    I will try to have things packed up by the end of the week. You'll need to send me your mailing address (and a bit of money to cover shipping costs, please) and it will be on its way. My email address

    Thanks friends! This will make this whole destashing process even more fun!

  4. I'm the one who should be destashing yarn instead of wanting to take some stuff off your hands. If you feel like sending any up to St. John's, let me know!
