One More Thing

The yarn is free, but if I have to mail it,
you’ll need to pay the shipping.
It’s still a great deal!

Yarn Free to Good Home!

This morning I culled my stash of all yarn that I don’t have a use for,
don’t personally like anymore, can’t remember where or why I got it,
or generally want to dispose of for whatever reason.
I sent a big box to my daughter, but there is more left over!
Before I bring it to the PTA Thrift Shop,
here is your chance to get some really good, and really free, yarn.

This stash includes the following:
1. Classic Elite ‘Spotlight’ in pink #6, 100% cotton, 4.5 st/inch on # 7 needles,

And, at least 6 or 7 other kinds of yarn, but I’m tired of typing for now.
