Chanel Inspired Jacket!

Update: This yarn offer has been taken and is no longer available.

Fickle, thy name is Rabbit. That's right; I was going to knit this jacket for myself and changed my mind because I have too much to knit and don't think I'll get to this jacket as quickly as I'd like. It's trendy so I don't want to stash the yarn. So before I take this yarn back to the store I decided to give someone else a chance to have it. 17 brand-spankin' new skeins of yarn to make this Chanel-inspired jacket on the cover of Phildar's Tendances 2005 Spring pattern book. There are 10 skeins of Clapotis in Lotus (light violet), 4 skeins of Phil Eponge in Blanc (white) and 3 skeins of Sunset in Irise (glittery white). The amount is enough to knit French size 34/36, which is the size I always knit.

BONUS: If you want, I can include my copy of this pattern book in FRENCH for 5 euros extra, which is the cost of the book. Shipping is not additional.

Oooh! Fancy French yarn for a fringey jacket!
[Colors may show up differently on some browsers.]

I paid 70 euros for this yarn and that's what I'm offering it for. If you want a copy of the pattern book, add on 5 euros. Total cost (including book, if desired) is only 75 euros + shipping. As the yarn itself passes the 1000 gram mark, cost for PRIORITY, INSURED shipping is 35 euros to America. (I ship to Europe but I need to check the rate for this mode of shipping before sending.) Shipping costs are approximate and subject to change.

If you are interested in this yarn, let me know. Please do not write to me unless you seriously intend to obtain this yarn, and read my stash diving rules if you haven't already. (Note: My stash offerings are not on a "first come, first served" basis. I will leave this one up for at least 24-48 hours in order to give all of my regular visitors a chance to see it, and then I will reply to the person to whom I decide to send.)
