I also sell hand dyed merino wool sock yarn. My 2 youngest daughters & I have been dying sock yarn since April '06 and it's been good. However, I need to sell more to pay tuition so help me out knitters and check me out on Ebay. Thank you.

To Anonymous who left a message about whether it's fair to leave feedback for a "no send" only 7 days after the "mail by date" of the swap. Sorry if it offends you however when I leave the ratings for the swaps I don't get, I also state that I will change the feedback once something arrives. If something doesn't arrive, feedback remains the same. Otherwise, I am a very sincere person and I will change the feedback once I get something. Keep in mind that I have been screwed out of 7 swaps total despite the fact that I have mailed every single one of mine. It's pretty sad when you can't count on swappers sending their packages. As of today's date, I still yet to receive the 7 swaps. So if you mailed the swap, I should have received it or will receive it shortly. Of course I have no idea which swap we are talking about since you didn't state which one you mailed off or will be mailing off.
