      Digging deeper in my stash has resulted in the following goodies.  I am also listing a few projects finished and not worn as they are too large (diet worked!) for less than the cost of yarn.  All items carefully stored in a non-smoking home.  The prices listed below DO NOT include mailing costs.  

      Please do ask me for additional information if I have neglected details you require.  You can reach me at either iknitnspin@... or jarthur@...  I will require your full mailing address if you are wanting me to find actual mailing costs.  Payment please by cheque or money order, I cannot accept PayPal.  I am located in Ontario Canada.  

      Thank you everyone for your support while I work through this process.
