      Here're the yarns etc. that are still for sale. I've also added a couple
      more yarns. All items are from a smoke-free home, and my pets aren't allowed
      into the room in which the yarn containment zone is located.


      1. Kit from Ram Wools. "Reflections." This is a pretty much one-size-fits-
      all sweater in large, horizontal, curved stripes of dark charcoal,
      reddish-brown, medium tobacco brown, light tobacco brown, an off-white. The
      bottom stripes contains some intarsia, if you wish to put it in: two Inuits
      surrounded by two friendly-looking polar bear and two inquisitive-looking
      fish. Yarn used in the kit is Istex (Lopi Lett), Selkirk, and Ballybrae.
      Needles uses are US 8/5mm, US 7 4.5mm. Gauge: 20 sts and 30 rows = 4" in US
      8/rmm. The finished measurements are length: 27", width: 22.8", sleeve
      length: 18". The stitches used are simple: ribbing and stockinette stitch.
      Full instructions come with the yarn, and everything comes in its own
      zippered plastic case. This is a lovely and comfortable-looking pullover; I
      just don't know when I'll ever get to knitting it. ;-) I can't remember
      what I paid for it, unfortunately. I was asking US $40 plus shipping. NEW
      PRICE IS US $35 plus shipping.

      2. 20 balls Coats Canada "Princess Multi." All in original put-up. 63%
      wool/37% cotton. Suggested needle size US 7/4.5mm. Each ball 1.75 oz/50g.
      Color KC101, dye lot 1. This is a really jolly ragg-type yarn. The wool is
      red, and the cotton is white. It's nice and soft, too. I can't remember what
      I paid for this, but I'm asking US $3 per ball plus shipping. NEW PRICE IS
      US $2.50 per ball plus shipping.

      3. 17 balls Cleckheaten Nature alpaca/wool 8 ply. Each ball (in original
      put-up) is 50 g, 50% alpaca/50% wool. 22 sts and 30 rows equal 4"/10 cm on
      US 6/4mm/UK 8. The color is o5, and the lot is 702711. The color is a lovely
      pale green, sort of a very muted apple green but without yellow tones. Is
      this yarn ever _soft_! I'm asking US $3 per ball plus shipping. NEW PRICE
      IS US $2.50 per ball plus shipping.

      4. NEW: 1 big ball of Brunswick Fleece, 96% wool/4% nylon, 100 g/3.5 oz/100
      yd, 2.5 sts and 4 rows = 1" on US 10.5/6.5 mm needles, color Bar Harbor
      53206. Boucle' yarn, variegated from cranberries and dark rose pinks to teal
      blues to greys. Soft and fuzzy and would coordinate with many other yarns.
      Original price: US $9.95. Asking US $5 plus postage. NEW PRICE IS US $4 plus

      5. NEW: 2 balls Adriafil New Zealand Print Classic, 100 g/200 m, 75%
      wool/25% acrylic, 3-4 mm needles. No gauge given. Variegated from dark
      cranberries to medium cobalt blues to medium sea/pine greens to browns;
      muted colors. Soft and easy to coordinate with many other yarns. Original
      price: US $9.95 per ball. Asking $10 for both balls plus postage. NEW PRICE
      IS US $9 plus shipping.


      I was offering these for US $3 each plus postage. NEW PRICE IS US $2 plus
      shipping. All books contain some real classics that'd look great today. If
      you decide to take all four books, the price would be US $6.50 plus

      Cardigans, Slipovers, and Accessories for Him and Her. I'm not finding a
