I think when you start saying things like "just throw it on top of that pile of yarn over there," you have, well, too much yarn.
It's not something I like to say, but I have to face facts.
If I lived in a 12 room mansion, perhaps things would be different--my yarn collection would look laughable in such an immense palace.
But I don't live in a mansion--yet.
And the yarn does seem to be taking over. Just a smidge.
So, I recently re-sorted my stash and pulled out some stuff I know I'm never going to use. A whole bag full of it.
And you know what I'm going to do?
I'm going to give it away.
Yes, for free. FREE!
Now, don't get too excited. I'm not that generous. Really. I'm not going to be giving away Skinny Bugga! or Madelinetosh, here.
But I do have some yarn that's, well, not so nice.
No, that's not the right way to put it. Really, there's nothing wrong with this yarn, but it's not my style. It's more "big box craft store" than "local yarn shop." I suppose I have become a bit of a yarn snob. (I'll deal with that issue later.)
But I know someone might get some use out of it, so it seems a waste to leave it wallowing unloved in a bin.
So, let's have a little contest, shall we? Post a comment here by, let's say, September 1, and I'll draw a few winners, each of whom will receive a FREE yarn grab bag. You won't know what you're getting. You might love it. You might hate it. But it's FREE, so what the hey? (Or is that "hay"?)
So leave a comment, go tell your friends to leave a comment, and then daydream about how nice it would be to get a free bag of yarn in the mail.
ETA: Just to give you an idea, my bag-o-yarn includes Patons, Elann, and Cascade, among others!
