It's that time again...

Fund raising... (any missing pictures will be updated tomorrow)

I have to offer (all prices in Candian dollars, and do not include shipping):

4+ lbs of cormo hogget #840 fleece, 2009, from Sue of US Cormo Farm. Paid $110.00 US shipped, and will sell for $75.00. I washed and carded a small handful, and it is awesome, as always. Click on link and scroll down to see a photo of the (up to) 4.75" staple.

Indian Princess type spinning wheel for spinning art yarn. Complete with one massive bobbin. This wheel is quite rustic, but functional. $75.00, but must be a local sale.

Strauch Finest chain driven drum carder. Used once (for real! I carded some shetland and i'm still spinning it), and all parts are included except the original box. $600.00 CDN. I cannot ship. This is a fantastic deal!

2 skeins of Noro Aurora, in colourway 6A. One has had the label removed and some yarn wound off, and back on again. Both for $15.00

3 skeins of Ornaghifilati 'Gong', in colourway 988-76079. Mercerized cotton, sport weight. $10.00

2 skeins of Crystal Palace Kid Merino, 240yds/25gm. Colour: Nightlights. $7.50

2 skeins of Artyarns Ultramerino4, fingering weight. Colourway 101. $15

From the 2008 Year of Lace:

December 2008 kit, including the Snowdrop Shawl pattern by Nancy Bush, and a cake of natural merino lace yarn. We had just got an electric ball winder at the shop and this skein got away from us. My scale weighs it at 206 grams. The pattern calls for 100 grams, so you have an extra shawl there. $50.00

June 2008 kit, including the Berry Blue-tiful Summer Stole pattern by Joan Schrouder, and 100 grams of Lorna's Laces 'Helen's Lace' in the colour Berry Blue-tiful. $50.00

You may know that I worked at Make One during the year of lace; I just wanted to let you know that I was one of the first people who joined the year of lace; quite some time before I started working there. I don't want you to think that I got these packages for free and I'm taking advantage.

2009 CycleOps Fluid Trainer. Used a half dozen times. It's great.. just not my deal. Paid $400, will take $300 including a climbing block.

I'm debating the cormo, but I have no hand combs! Do you think I could spin from the lock?
