The De-stash continues! The lots of yarn are moving even more quickly than I thought. For details on how the Fancy Nancy De-stash works, see this post. You might also browse through it to see if there is any yarn remaining that you'd like. Once the buyers send me the funds, I mark it as "sold." (Send inquires to knit and tonic at gmail dot com)
Okay, three more for today:
First, here are 16 hanks of Classic Elite Yarns Imagine. It's a gorgeous, glossy yarn made of cotton and rayon. There are 98 yards in each hank and the ball band says it knits up to 21 sts to four inches on US #6 (4.25mm) needles. Since there are so many hanks, my guess is Nancy had a pullover in mind. This would be great for that, or for a warmer-weather cardigan or even a lacy baby blanket. Most of this yarn was in a never-opened bag so I don't know what she spent on it.
I did see a hank of this on Amazon for $6.20 but I will let all 16 skeins go for $55.95, including shipping. SOLD!
This next yarn is what made me give Nancy the Fancy part of her name. It's called "Refletos" and it is by Katia. She told me that she was going to make a pullover for this--and even showed me the book that she wanted to hang onto--and to tell you the truth, the pullover didn't look half as fancy as I'd expect based on what the yarn looks like in the ball. Any rate, it's a blend of mohair, polyester and nylon. There are bits of bronze metallic as well as eyelashes of black. The base color (mohair) is best described as copper. There are 11 balls and each 50 grams yields 88 yards. I can see this made into a bolero-type vest, or mixed with some plainer yarn. I've seen people use this type yarn in felted projects. Knits up to 18 sts on US Size #8 (5mm) needles.
Nancy paid $12.00 for each of the 11 balls in this lot ($132). I will sell it for $50.00, including priority shipping.
This last lot of the day will go quickly. Nancy told me she was going to make a striped "grandpa" cardigan for her husband (who is a grandpa) with this yarn. Just look at the colors! I'm not familiar with the yarn and there are no prices on it. But, it is a soft and squishy blend of cotton and acrylic and knits to 22 sts to 4 inches on US size #3-6 (3 - 4mm) needles. There are 10 gray balls, 2 red and 4 white. Each ball has 145 meters, or just under 160 yards.
I will let these 16 balls go for $55.80, including priority shipping. SOLD!
That's it for today! Make sure you scroll down to see if there are any unsold lots from previous posts that you might want.
