noro for sale

We had a record-breaking 264 trick or treaters before we ran out of candy. I know. We RAN OUT OF CANDY. How does a candyholic like me run out of candy? I felt very ashamed. Next year I vow to be better prepared (or more stingy with my handouts).
Okay, so a while back I bought 15 skeins of Noro Fuji. The colors turned out to be less circus-like than I wanted, so I thought I’d see if anyone out there in blogland would like to buy the lot. Noro Fuji is 60% cotton, 20% wool, 18% acrylic, and 2% nylon. The color is #104.

15 skeins should be enough for a long-sleeved sweater. I got the whole shebang with shipping for about $75, so I will sell it for $60, including shipping within the US. I saw that an ebayer is selling 10 skeins for $60, NOT including shipping, so I think my offer is pretty good. Please contact me if you’re interested or have any questions.
Okay, I’m sending out positive energy for November 2. Keep your fingers crossed and eat some good chocolate!

    264 is impressive! I only had twenty or so. Maybe my street is too dark.

    264!!! That’s amazing! We had zero. Yep, no trick-or-treaters here, despite the fact that I had a metric ton of candy on hand. We didn’t even get the neighbors bringing their costumed doggies around or anything . . . guess I’ll have to treat my coworkers tomorrow! I would eat the candy myself, but I have a big ol’ stomachache because of the impending election.

    I wish I had counted… We had swarms and swarms of kids and we ran out of candy too. Totally embarrassing. I hated being THAT house, the one who hadn’t bought enough candy for everyone.

  4. Jessica says:

    It was easy for me to count. We had one. One in three years. The poor child got a Halloween bookmark because I didn’t buy any candy. Because no one ever comes!

  5. molly says:

    I’m wondering how exactly you counted all those trick-or-treaters. Did the candyholic in you pre-count the candy?

  6. Taya says:

    We only had about 20 groups – maybe 60 or 70 kids. We had enough candy for everyone to eat after dessert. My baked apples didn’t turn out so great – all the good stuff ran out of the bottom. The sausage and scalloped potatoe dish turned out quite excellent.

  7. Taya says:

    Yikes! I misspelled potato – I pulled a Dan Quayle!

  8. froggy says:

    what am amazing number of trick or treaters!

  9. carolyn says:

    so what did you do then? turn off all the lights, pull the blinds and pretend you weren’t home in the hopes that candyless trick or treaters wouldn’t egg your house?
    by the way, i know what really happened. you just didn’t want to give them the good stuff!! 🙂

  10. Marie says:

    Mariko, I’m having problems sending emails to you – they keep being returned. Is there any thing wrong with your email account?

  11. Gina says:

    How funny! We had candy leftover, *and* I want to sell 10 skeins of Noro Fuji because it is too circus-like for me!

  12. margene says:

    Not one kid! They must know where to come if you had so many! (My candy is in the trash.)

  13. Cruz says:

    Wow, where do you live? I had two trick or treaters! I was so disappointed…

  14. Weasel says:

    I will send an email, but I would definitely love to take those skeins of yarn off your hands for $60.

  15. tania says:

    super yummy wool!
    ooh, i wish i trick or treated at your house…
    (or at all… sniff!)

  16. Hannah says:

    My husband was being too stingy and he kept saying he didn’t want to run out. What we ended up with was tons of leftover candy that I can’t stop eating! By the end of the night, we were giving kids candy in hugs handfulls!

  17. Silvia says:

    Wow, that’s alot of breeders in your neck of the woods! I also adore the reason for the “return”–not more emphaticly circuslike. Fabulous.

  18. Jan says:

    The kids were probably all readers of your blog and figured they’d hit the mother lode if they made the pilgrimage to your house on Halloween!
    (Thanks for the note and *enclosure*. Totally unnecessary, but appreciated!)

  19. Rebecca says:

    A friend of mine lives in a neighborhood in San Francisco where they literally close down the street for about 6 blocks so that the kids can trick or treat. She invited me to help give out candy a couple of years ago – she bought one 500 piece bag of candy (tootsie rolls and stuff) from Costco and told me to give out one piece per kid. We were out of candy by 9pm!!!

  20. Leslie says:

    Speaking of good chocolate–just made a yummy chocolate cake that would have been infinitely more yummy had I used non-Hershey’s cocoa and non-Ghiradelli semi-sweet chips. Got any suggestions? How does one score good chocolate in the hinterlands?

  21. becky says:

    sadly, we get very few trick or treaters. Only two houese on my block even had pumpkins out! that means that two Families with small children did not give out candy. Shouldn’t there be a rule that you have to give out candy if your kid is trick or treating?
    since we get so few, I made little candy men to hand out with fun sized bodies, tootsie roll arms, smartie legs and dum dum heads.
