I have picked my next coupla sweaters I'd like to make. I even have the yarn to make both of them. Mostly.
I'm like a skein (maybe 2) short of one yarn and about 30 yards short the other. sigh.
I need one (maybe 2) skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Lite in Ocean Mix colorway (#4285 and the dye lot I have is 701 but I'm not all that concerned with dye lot).
I need a skein (or 30 yards-ish) of Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Carnelian colorway (#6256, also dye lot 701).
Also, I have an idea for some mittens I'm designing and am desperately looking for one (maybe 2 but definitely at least one ) skein(s) of Koigu P315. It's the KPPPPM koigu.
I've been lurking on Ravelry's destash group with no success. I have also contacted some other ravelers that have the stuff I need. Again, without success.
Also, it's not available locally as far as my phone calls to all the nearest yarn stores tells me and I'd rather pay shipping to some imaginary friends (the bloggers) then to stores far afield. Just sayin'.
Hey, how do you guys feel about this issue? My friend, K, says she finds it very irritating when strangers email her to ask if she's willing to give up something in her stash. She says if she was, she'd put it in the trade/sell part of her stash page. I say, I've asked people before if they'd give some yarn up if I needed it and some have been very willing to help! I feel it doesn't hurt to ask!
And I never ask them to just give it to me. Same here, if you guys have this stuff, I'll buy it off you! My email's on the left there under my face.
Lurking in your Ravelry stash, Ruth!
ETA: Someone on Ravelry is letting go of her Ultra Alpaca Light in Ocean Mix - yay!
