This is what I found in one tote. Most of it is lace weight (1 vote for keeping it), it is all crazy expensive stuff (2 votes for keeping it) and check out the fiber content - camel, silk, cashmere, alpaca, mohair, buffalo and merino (3 votes for keeping it). So much for my rules because I haven't looked at it in the last year and I have no idea what I'm going to knit with any of it.
I put it all back and moved onto something easier to get rid of - dishcloth cotton. I'm all for knitting dishcloths but I think I can part with some of these small balls (large balls are still on the shelf unsorted)
This was much easier to sort through. Over half is boxed up ready to move onto a new home. This still leaves me lots to knit for myself and Christmas. One smart Knitter on facebook suggested knitting them up for a church bazaar which I think I will do too.
Now to think about what to look through tomorrow. Sock yarn maybe.....
