Yarn For Sale! Jo Sharp Yarn For Sale!!!

Okay, folks. I'm selling what's left of my fabulous buy of Jo Sharp Silkroad yarn. It's 85% wool, 10% silk, 5% cashmere. It's been my absolute favorite yarn to work with so far! I can't really justify keeping this since I already made an awesome sweater. I have 19 balls ready to go (at what I paid for them plus shipping). All of this can be yours for $80 (including shipping). If I don't have any takers, I'll just put it up on eBay later this month. Speaking of which, you can pay me with paypal or send me a check. Just email me at sra_nelson at yahoo dot com if you're interested.

Here are the specs and some close-ups. Length: 85 m (93 yds), 50g ball. Tension: 18 sts & 24 rows measured over 4 inches in st st using US8 needles. Gentle hand wash/Dry flat in shade. Do not tumble dry/Do not dry clean. Made in Italy.

2 3/4 balls of Quartz. Dye lot 320
10 balls of meadow. 7 from dye lot 102 3 from dye lot 320

1 ball Merlot. Dye lot 322

4 balls Ricepaper. Dye lot 320.

1 ball Venetian. Dye lot 320

And here's a picture of what I made using 7 balls Quartz, and 1 ball each of the rest of the colors. It's Sweetness from the archives.

I love how the colors work together and the yarn feels so good on the skin! I'm ready for winter!
