Stash Swap

Is your stash feeling a little untended?

Need a little summertime yarn fix?

Got an urge to knit somewhere with AC?

Then you want to come over tomorrow night!

I’m holding the first ever Girls of Excess Stash Swap.

In truth, it’s more of a Stash Giveaway than a Stash Swap because I have 5 boxes filled with cones yarn and by the end of the night I want to have it all gone.

There’s some silk and… well, I’m not sure what the rest of it is. Maybe wool, maybe blend. But what ever it is, it’s perfect for your next project!  Or for the new knitter in your family.  Or for tying up your tomato plants…

Please just come and take it away!

Bring a friend. Bring your knitting and stay for a while, or just snag a couple of cones for your next project. Either way, please help me get this yarn gone so Gerry will stop nagging me about it.

p.s. If you bring something to swap, I will force you to take the same number of cones home with you. You think I’m kidding. I’m not kidding.

p.p.s. I’ve even setup a

    Oh how I wish I was living in Toronto. For tonight only. Have fun Toronto people.
    Like I need more wool and such in my stash. It started very innocently. You know how it is.

    Sorry Vicki (and roro). If there’s some left over, I’ll sneak a cone in my luggage and bring it to you next week. (shh!)
    Don’t all our stashes start innocently? Then you see that really cool textured yarn you’re sure will look great as a scarf with your winter coat so you buy it in June and put it away ’til fall… fall 5 years later. Now, since you have established a place to *put* your yarn… it’s perfectly reasonable to pick up a couple of balls that might add colour to a hat, or make a nice fringe for something. Soon you have a room full of yarn… and you are one of us.
    Admit it!

    Wow, wish I lived closer, I would take it all. We are looking for people to make and donate scarves and afghans or anything they are good at making. I am trying to start a not-for-profit organization, Two-Hearts. We leave in about a week to go to the Pine Ridge Sioux Indian Reservation and meet some of the Native Americans I have been corresponding with from there. Unbeknownst to many people, we have third-world situations right here in the US of A.

    I hope your stash finds a good home. I have more than that myself in storage, I just cannot knit fast enough to catch up! I have three daughters and none of them are interested in learning, maybe one of my grandchildren will keep up the tradition, I would hate for the cycle to be broken.
