I hope your shoulder gets healed soon. I'm sure the yarn will go quickly. It's very pretty!! :)
Thank you.
Unfortunately I have had this shoulder and back injury for years from a fall, many surgeries and still can't move my arm much so my knitting is so limited.
This is why I have decided to sell the many boxes of yarn that were mine and the many bought for my mom she didn't get to use. I don't have room to store them so my sister, who has been storing them for me brings a few boxes at a time.

I also did many other crafts through the years, so I am slowly sorting all of the other craft items I have to sell and clean out, many that I can't post here on the forum.

Oh I'm SO sorry to hear that! Are you able to knit Continental style? I have a Greek friend that knits that way. She said she was taught that way in Greece and can't knit like I do, which is probably the English style. I'm guessing it's your right shoulder? I know about back problems. The most comfortable place for me to knit is on the recliner with the foot rest up. I will be praying for you. :)

It is the left shoulder, but the arm has very limited mobility with a butcher knife stabbing the shoulder joint 24/7. I find the knitting causes more pain and radiates down the arm into the hand, so I don't do much knitting. I do try here and there when I can.

I did a lot of charity knitting which is why I have so many boxes of yarn, along with knitting to make gifts, which my mom did also.

Thanks for your suggestion but it is knitting in general.

I'm so sorry to hear that. It would be awful to have pain all the time. I'm glad you're on this site. It's such a wonderful site of encouraging people. I do hope you're able to do something fun without much/any pain. I do enjoy seeing all the yarns you post for sale, but am saddened as to why you are selling them.
