Alive and Purging

After weeks of packing and moving boxes, we are officially settled into our new (much smaller) home. Thank the Gods/Goddesses/Fairies/Sheep 'cuz I just don't think I could've handled one more box of under-used clutter. We had a huge yard sale, made some dough and donated a ton of stuff to Goodwill. And now I'm working on selling stuff. First on the list -- yarn. Gasp! I know, I know ... it's evil. I'll pay for this. I'll dream about this yarn in the wee hours of the night in July 2007 with the perfect project in mind and wish that I wasn't so impulsive back in July 2005. But alas, there is only so much stash space, especially considering that I share my home with another crafty lady and her crafty toys, a small child and his small child toys, and two kitties and their feline toys. We have plenty of toys. So I'll be selling this batch of yarn:

If you've been hanging out with me for a while, you might remember this is wool from my recycled sweater. The sweater was an enormous men's sweater, so we're talking a hell of a lot of wool. Further, the drape was wonderful, surprisingly supple. Wait ... am I talking myself into keeping it? Although the yarn looks like a brownish-green from a distance, it was spun with many different colors. Here's a closeup. It's just so beautiful.

The yarn knits up at about a worsted weight (4 sts/") on US7s.

If you're interested in purchasing this yarn, give me a holler. I still have to total the yards, but we're talking somewhere around 1200 yards of 100% Irish wool.
I'm planning on putting it up on eBay within a couple days, but I have no idea how to price it. Any suggestions? Knitting gurus, are you out there?

P.S. I have lots to report, with pictures and all. Keep an eye out for updates (in spite of Bloglines being a bit fussy this week).

OOOOh, pretty, pretty yarn!!! You must tell us when you are posting it on ebay! I would love to use it for my Rogue pattern, and it sounds like enough even!!!

Good job on the purging...maybe some of your ability will rub off on me...
