Yarn it Forward!

Find those skeins of yarn in your stash that are just not doing it for you anymore, and “yarn them forward” to another knitter who will breathe new life into these abandoned lovelies! Go to the Ravelry group discussion thread here to see what the project is all about!

Here’s what I’m planning to give away to a new home: 4 Skeins of Mission Falls 1824 Superwash Merino Wool. ┬áMy stash page is here.
