DESTASH FOR CASH closes

When I went to visit one of my favorite sites, this is what was posted:

Susan and I have decided to close the DeStash blog as of 10:00 p.m. today, 13 June 2007. The unending maintenance, problems with Blogger and constant sending of reminder email to members to follow the established guidelines set out on the blog have been more work than we anticipated, and frankly we are burned out and ready for the site to close.

That's right folks, Destash for Cash site is now closed. Wouldn't you know it. Just when I considered unloading hoards of yarn, they close. Yeah, yeah, I know that I only put up a few balls of dishcloth yarn but I was at least "thinking" about doing more - like my bags of Koigu and Debbie Bliss or even the 20 skeins of Lionbrand something that I bought when Treasure Island went out of business - I was seriously considering putting it all on the Destash site. Anyway, I guess I'll just have to continue with my yarn diet until I knit up all of that stuff. Thanks to Susan and Terri for providing such a great blog for all of us compulsive knitters!

Oh no...just when I was getting ready to post some yarn to sell. Yeah, right...I'm as bad as you, Deborah! They'll get it when they can pry it from my cold, dead fingers, LOL.

Still, I'm sorry that blog has closed. It was a great concept.

Some of the best yarns I own were acquired through that site. Great idea, but a lot of maintenance.

If your're interested in trading check out Nora's site (Black Dog Knits)

You might be able to get something you want without buying it...that's good, right?

What a terrible loss...just when you figured out what you could part with in your stash.

Destashers, despair not -- other bloggers are sponsoring a couple of sites for destashing -- sorry I havn't been tracking the details but a bit of googling should show them up
