      Hello everyone, thank you for helping me downsize.

      There are more new items listed and I have removed items from the list that have been confirmed sold and reorganized the remainder to make it easier to read through. All items are carefully stored in a non-smoking home in Ontario, Canada. Prices do not include actual mailing costs (there is a book special below that may include postage)

      Please send your actual mailing information if you wish to confirm items so that I can get for you exact postage costs/options. I have photos of all items available if you would like more details. I am able to accept personal cheques as payment or a money order but not PayPal.

      I am downsizing my treasured stash because of continuing health concerns but most definitely not giving up on this craft I love. I am modifying projects and tools to reflect my current abilities.
      If you require further information, please do not hesitate to write to me at iknitnspin@... or at jarthur@...
