Book De-Stash 1

For the past 10 years I've developed a huge library of knitting and crochet books. So much so that I'm running out of space. I've bought a variety of books over the years which I really like but I've not had time to knit anything from. I've only flicked through them from time to time. So I'm having a book de-stash.

I'm listing the name of each book, link to the Amazon UK page, the weight of the book so you can work out postage. UK First Class Small Parcel is £3.20 for up to 1kg (1000gr). Up to 2kg (2000gr) it'll be £5.45. If you live outside the UK you can either contact me and I'll check postage for your country or check the Royal Mail website. If you live in the Liskeard area or are coming to my workshops this term and want to collect the book(s) then let me know. 

To buy any of the books, please leave a comment with the name of the book(s) and a contact e-mail. I won't publish these comments (all blog comments are read by me before they appear on the blog). I'll send you a Paypal invoice. If the Paypal invoice isn't paid within 48 hours then the next purchaser gets it.
