The Current Situation
Remember the Great Terrace Tragedy of '06? Apparently it was just a warm up.
Last winter, Hotty Hubby and I started shopping for an apartment. We found one. We hired a lawyer and made our down payment. The building was a rental and is in the process of being converted to condominiums. How nice! Brand new apartment, a couple customized renovations worked into the contract... We should be able to move in August. September. October. November. Someday.
Needless to say, our current apartment is just a tad too small and thus the reason for the move. (Though no matter how big or small your family is, you can pretty much make that statement for any NYC apartment.) I have been spending every spare moment downsizing. I call it "downsizing" when the truth of the matter is I am just "sizing". Baby gear and Hotty Hubby's wine habit coupled with my yarn habit has us bursting at the seams. I am basically trying to make everything fit right now in the hopes that we can survive a few more days/weeks/months in this space.
Anyhoo, I went through my yarn and decided that knitting really isn't my thing so I put my whole stash for sale on ebay.
Oh I am funny! Yes, indeed! Ok, I am not about to quit knitting and certainly not selling my entire stash. I did put some goodies up for grabs and you can bid on them here. Better hurry, bidding ends soon!
However, what fun is stash-busting without a freebie?
I have this here Morehouse Merino laceweight. I bought it at the Union Square Greenmarket about 2 years ago. I am not exactly sure of the yardage, I am guessing there is a total of 420 yards with these two skeins. I love the vibrant yet earthy colors, but never made anything with it. Morehouse laceweight is very unique. It has a rustic look to it. I think it is quite neat. So why am I giving it away? I think YOU can make something better with it. And don't worry, I have other Morehouse Merino laceweight in my stash, I truly am cool with passing this on.
So, if you want this yarn, leave me a comment (with your email address AT DOTcom thing) stating what you envision it as. Could be knitting, crochet or weaving. From those who leave their artistic musings, I will put their names into a hat and have a drawing. The winner gets the yarn! How's that for getting your mind off a bunch of "Say no to Crack" Plumber Butt Contractors?
