Sample Sale Round Up

I'm currently running a Sample Sale where I'm selling off lots of knitted samples of various magazine designs and self-published designs. Many of the shawls are knitted in my own YarnAddict hand-dyed yarn which is no longer available. Most of the garments are UK size 8/10 but there's lots of shawls too, which fit a variety of sizes. The samples have only been used for photography and some of the shawls have been displayed at shows. I'm washing and blocking all the shawls before I list them to make them look their best but I'm not washing and blocking the garments. Some of the garments look a bit creased. That's because they've been stored folded up. 

I've listed the samples below on my Facebook and Instagram pages. But I thought it would be useful to collate them here. There will be more samples coming this week and they will initially be listed on my Facebook and Instagram pages and then next week I'll do another post here to collate what's not sold. So if you want first dibs, follow me on Facebook and Instagram.


Here's how it works:
• Shawls, garments and accessories are listed on Instagram (YarnAddictAnni) or Facebook (YarnAddict by Anniken Allis).
• Price includes UK/European Signed For Shipping. 
• International Shipping will be £5 extra.
• Sales are final and items cannot be returned.
• Sales will be on a first come, first served basis.
• Comment SOLD with your Paypal e-mail (all comments are seen by me before they're published and I will delete your comment after I've made a note of your e-mail address, so noone else will see your e-mail).
• Please pay within 24 hours of receiving the Paypal invoice. If not I'll offer it to the next on the list.
• Please check back regularly as the sale will continue for a few weeks.

For the samples that were published in magazines, I can't show the modelled photos here because of copyright reasons but if you click on each design, it'll take you to the Ravelry page where you can see modelled photos of each design.
