I comment on Your blog, Julie. :)

So, I unravelled a sweater yesterday and came out with almost a pound of light worsted weight cream colored lambswool and angora yarn. I'm going to sell it on eBay, but I'm not sure how much I should start the auction at. Probably I'll add up all my costs for listing and the sweater and hope I get at least one bid.

This morning I rode to walmart and got rit dye, rick rack, fabric as a gift for a friend, more size ten crochet cotton in white, and two shirts. I didn't try the shirts on, and I don't know whether I'm hoping they'll fit so I can keep them because I need summer shirts, or whether they won't fit so I can return them because I don't want to spend money on clothes. I guess I win either way.

When I got home I vaccumed the pool. I only have a week or so to get it swimable before Julie's visit.

I'm very proud of myself today. Because even though I rode to walmart, and I'm going to be riding my bike in to teach this afternoon, I still did my walking on the treadmill and I'm up to 25 minutes now. I'm working on being at at least half an hour before May 12 so I can tell the dr, yeah, I exercise for 30 minutes a day. And I've been remembering to stretch afterward too!

I'm thinking I might do a little yarn dyeing experimenting this afternoon. I have to go teach my tatting class at four thirty, but I should have a little time to dye before then.

Alright, already, I'll comment! :)

I think you should probably start the auction at about 50 cents (Has anyone else notice that there's not a "cent" key on the computer keyboard anymore? What's this world coming to?). I'd bid on it.

Thanks. :)
Don't you think you're selling my yarn a little short? I do.
And if you want recycled yarn, I'll let you unravel a sweater yourself while you're here. :P

Where do you GET these sweaters to unraval??

I'll up my bid to 75 cents. :)

Goodwill. You seriously cannot buy yarn that's as nice as they're made of for less than an arm and leg in it's original yarn state. Definately worth the two fifty I paid for the sweater. I'm really looking forward to using my silk yarn after I dye it.
