I need yarn!

There is a possibility that I might be able to start selling some of my knitted products. Bags, hats, scarves, whatever I can come up with.

But I need a starting fund. I need to knit up a moderate selection of items for samples.

Alyce sent me some yarn she found on her city’s free-cycle but I’ve already gone through most of that.

Most of my projects take a full skein of 364 yards.

Some of the bags need grommets, a set per bag is $7.00; I would hope to be able to sell those bags for $20 or so.
I’m also able to make bags without metal grommets, not quite as smooth or as pretty but less expensive.

I’ve also started using some wool yarn that can be felted after its knit. I expect to be able to sell these for $30 or better as they are more durable and solid. Wool is more expensive but frequently can be found on sale and as long as the type of wool is the same I can combine different colors to make the project large enough.

So if your elderly auntie has stopped knitting family afghans and would like to donate her bits of yarn, I’d be more than grateful.
Or if your local hobby shop is having a blow-out of last decades yarns…
Or perhaps you found your old tabby’s secret stash of yarn behind the furnace ducting in the spare closet, she probably wouldn’t mind if you shared some with me..as long as you don’t tell her…cats aren’t known for being too generous though so do keep your acquisition of her stash quiet.
