I have spent the majority of today going through my wardrobe and purging it of items I can no longer wear.  Most of the things are either going to a friend who can wear them, or to Goodwill, but there are two items that need to go to someone who will appreciate them.

Back in 1998, Schacht produced a T-shirt with a wonderful image of a lady weaving on it.  I fell in love with the shirt and bought it, even though it was too big for me at the time.  I wore it all of three times before I sadly realized it was just too big.  So I am going to give this shirt away to someone who loves weaving and can wear a size XXL.

Here is a close-up of the image on the shirt:

And here is a picture of the shirt itself:

If you wear an XXL and want this shirt, please let me know in the comments.  I will mail it to you and even pay the postage.  I just want to see it go into the hands of someone who weaves and will love this shirt.  Update:  This shirt has been claimed.

The second thing I want to give away is a shirt I was given by Karin Skacel, herself, at Stitches Midwest in 2009.  I have never worn this shirt.  Why?  I could never bring myself to write on it knowing that I would not be able to wear it long.  I knew I would lose enough weight to make this shirt too big for me, and that day has come.  This shirt was never for sale and could only be gotten by being given it by Skacel either through a contest or drawing, or if you were lucky enough to be given it just because.

Here is the front of the shirt:

See, there is a place to put your name on the front.

And a place on the back to put a name to your “Addiction.”  I could have marked the Natura needles, but, again, I just could not write on it.  This is such a cool shirt, and it really needs to be in the hands of someone who loves Addi and wears a size large.  Again, if you want this shirt, let me know in the comments and I’ll mail it to you.

The first people to claim each of these shirts will get it.  This is no contest or drawing, just a give away.

These shirts will go to the post office on July 5th, when the July Fiber Binder Club packages go.

Thanks for helping me clean out my closet.

    […] this is a reminder that the Addi T-shirt has not been claimed yet.  If you wear a size large and love Addi knitting needles, let me know […]
