The Great Destash of 2015 -- Part One

My yarn stash is seriously getting out of control. Have you heard the acronym SABLE? Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy? Mine is nearing SABLEx3+.

I've been threatening all of my yarn -- and its embarrassing how much yarn that is -- that if it doesn't start inspiring me or spontaneously knitting itself into sweaters, it'll get its marching orders. And today, the destash begins.

The pile of yarn gathered for part on of the destash took less than 15 minutes to pull together. And it's just the tip of the iceberg. All of the skeins are mainly grouped by color and, when there are multiple skeins of the same color, all the same dyelot. And I have no pets and don't smoke, so you shouldn't have any unwanted odors. Just pure wooly-ness (mostly).

My decision to clear out yarn is your gain. In order to hopefully replenish the stash, I'm offering this perfectly good yarn to anyone who wants it at discount. I'll list an asking price, you make a best offer and, when we come to agreement, I'll ship the yarn to you. I'm not sure how international shipping works, but I think that's possible, too.

I think it'll be best if you email me (destash@rodeoknits.com) what yarn you want and, because I'm fully expecting a mass rush for the yarn (yeah right), I'll go by time/date stamp in the email if two people want the same yarn and priority will go to the person who wants all skeins of the colorway offered.
