So... first there's the freebie yarns from magazines (about 550g):
The dk yarns come to about 1000g:
and this bag of random yarns that I took off someone else's hands during a destash(!) is about 550g:
I also have half a ball of scarf yarn which is left from a Christmas present I made about a year ago. I'm not likely to make another from this, but perhaps someone else will enjoy it (95g):
So that gives me a grand total (without the granny square UFO) of about 2200g!!
It would have been nice to try to make something out of these myself, but reality kicked in to tell me that just wasn't going to happen. I hope they'll be able to go to a good home though, and maybe even help create some new yarn addicts at this weekend's knit and natter time...
And it feels good to have a newly empty box in the cupboard.
(a day later...) oops! I found some more: there's another 150g to go in the bag (half freebie yarn, and the rest is the remains of the Fab dk from the BSJ).
So that bring the given-away-total to 2350g... (My husband's very pleased!)
