Just a quick note too, I've put 'no pickups' because I'm expecting a bit of a frantic time coming up, but I'm happy for TNN people to do pickups :)

I've just realised that the auctions all finish at the same time. makes it hard to have bidding wars if someone like me is wanting more than one item :D

That's what auto-bid is for. :wink:

Plus auto-extend (they will just keep extending by 2 minutes if there are any bids in the last minute, which means they could finish at slightly different times if there are still late bids coming in.

You'll just have twice the fun trying to flick through different tabs and do multiple at once. :rotfl:

Minty - the '2-ply' yarn with a yardage of 389m, is that fingering weight? Cause that's fingering/4ply yardage if it is a 100g skein, if it's 2 plys of yarn making up a fingering weight, the label 2ply is very misleading because it implies it's laceweight.

If that makes any sense. :rotfl:

ETA: Sock yarn is the same.

Thanks Alia,

I'm wondering if it is between 2 ply and 4 ply (3 ply?) weightwise, because the lengths seem too short for 2 ply and too long for 4 ply. Wonder what I should call it? Googling now...

Maybe light fingering...

Well, as luck would have it Michelle, I'm loading two more scarf/shawls tonight, as I had two more beautiful scarfs arrive in the post today :) That gives you another week or so (but I'm not really pressuring you, just taking the opportunity to advertise :wink: ).
