Moving... (and a giveaway)

Well since we are moving come April sometime, I am doing a major destashing of my yarns! Anything I don't want to move halfway across the world is out of here. Now originally I was going to give all this to goodwill, but the goodwill here told me that it would end up in the trash because they wouldn't even try to sell it. Well that is just yarn abuse and I don't stand for abuse! So I am giving it away here instead, that is if anyone wants it....

And on a happy note bloggy giveaways are going on at the same time. Oh joy! After hitting this go check out all that yummy giveaway action!

Rules and legal junk:
You must have an address I can mail this to in the USA. Sorry, but I can't afford to do this otherwise.

I will be choosing the winner by going to random.org and having them randomly pick a number from the total number of comments. I will then count down the list until I hit that number. Whoever has that post, wins the whole kitten caboodle!

If you do not claim your prize in 4 days (I have to have your mailing address by that time) you forfeit the yarn and I will chose again (you can win a second time but don't expect to.) If the second time around no one claims the prize I am sending this to my nearest public school. They can always use yarn.

For prize tax purposes, I am going to make an educated guess and say this yarn would sell for 20 dollars American. Contest is void where prohibited. If you enter where this contest is void then I will chose another winner.

The contest ends on Sat. Jan. 31st (Eastern time) whenever I happen to close the comments. You can continue to enter until comments are closed.



Now to see what you could win! The yarn you see is what you get. (it is mostly acrylic that I have been carrying around for a long time.)




If you want to enter just comment here with a way to contact you.

Extra entries:
Click the "share this" button and Share! For ever different way you share you get an extra entry, just remember to comment once per share.

Really crazy extra entries:
Go to one of my other posts and Share that too! Comment here to get that entry counted.

And remember I need a way to contact you. Blogger doesn't let me see your email addresses so you either have to post them, do something so I can find you, or you can find me here. I will post the winner on this blog.

What a nice thing to do. I will mention this on my blog tonight for you.

I am of course gimpykatk on Ravelry and at aol.com

I do charity squares for blankets and can always use extra left over yarns. I can't believe the goodwill wouldn't even sell it. Strange.

Oh yes please I love doing test squares of different stiches and this would be brill! lizzie1989 on ravelry!

Spider Lady said...

Yarn!!! you can never have too much yarn! I'm still a newbie crocheter so I love all kinds of yarn!

spider said...

While it is a shame Goodwill isn't willing to take it, I got to admit, I'm thrilled they didn't so I can try to win it!!!

Curious why they said they wouldn't bother trying to sell it? I buy all the yarn I can find at Goodwill - wipe out their supply ... at < $1 a skein, it's always a great deal & I use the yarn for knitting for charity so it really does help with my too-tight budget!
