Massive Stash Sale part 3: lace & sport weight

Just popping my head in to say that I've sold almost all of my first two listings and I wanted to thank everyone who made a purchase.  It's great to know that this yarn is going to a good home, and that I can stop feeling guilt over not having time to knit it.  I can also see my floor again, so there's that.

I went to the post office today and shipped out five packages to various places all over the country.  It was so much fun...until they soaked me on the shipping.  We went to Staples and I spent a decent amount of money on packaging materials so I could have everything ready before getting to the post office.  It's faster if it's all packaged and labeled before I get there, and sometimes Alex has to sit in the car while I'm in there.  He's not the most patient kid (and that's saying something).  So I packaged everything up, and they charged me $47 to mail two small boxes and three envelopes of yarn!  Considering I'm only charging $3.50 per lot, I came out of pocket for a heck of a lot of money.  So, that being said, I have to raise the cost of shipping and I'm going to use the flat-rate boxes.  That means that shipping will need to be raised to $5.00.  I'll still swallow the cost of delivery confirmation, as that's more for my own peace of mind.

As a reminder, here are the rules:
I'm posting yarn here on the blog.  If you want the items, leave me a comment with an email where I can contact you.  I will send an invoice through PayPal (which means you can pay with paypal or with your credit card via paypal).  If you wish to pay with personal check, you can do that but I will not ship until after the check has cleared.  I can only sell within the United States.  Shipping is a flat rate of $5.00 including delivery confirmation, through the USPS.  If you combine lots you'll save on shipping, as I can package items together.  If I send out an invoice and it remains unpaid after 3 days, I'll assume you no longer want the items and relist them for sale.

And with that being said, here's my latest batch.  It's lace and sport weight.
