to the reddish Romney as needing a new home. I just love the alpaca’s silver colour. And it is soft. But I am just not enjoying spinning it at all.
There is about a pound, so I should be able to mail it for almost nothing. Same as before, just drop me a note. I really would just like to see it go to someone who might spin it, rather than let it age another five years in stash.
While I am at it – any weavers out there needing back issues (1980s-1990s) of The Weaver’s Journal or Handwoven? I am out of shelf space and would like to find them a good home.
In case you are wondering why I am not looking at eBay – it would be too expensive. Effectively, to stay inside the law, I can only use eBay.de and deal with the VAT or use the Bundespost to mail to the States. You can’t use the military APO system to make money. There were seven or eight prosecuted for violations last year. Probably not a significant part of the 23.000 + transactions that eBay reports originated out of APO/FPOs, but I don’t want to go there.
As it is, taking the time to batch and mail packages (MI, TX, PA, IL, Australia and downrange) as I did today is a pain to be avoided as long as possible. Almost as much fun as taking a teen shopping for a coat.
and Ms Pink has come down with a cold and wants her mom. The same child who earlier tried on all those coats before going downtown for Heidelberger Herbst.
