I Found Yarn

So last Saturday I was cleaning and organizing in the basement. I have a cabinet down there that's hard to get into, but I moved some things in front of it and decided to give it a cleaning.
And guess what I found? This sweater I started years ago. The back is all done and the front is half done.
Its a sweater I designed and now all I have to do is figure out where the pattern is so I can finish it up.
I like the colors and its a nice heavy sweater for winter. You might not be able to tell from these pretty poor quality photos, but it has squirrels and acorns on it.
And then I found a box with 19 skeins of Alice Starmore yarn- but from the 1990's- the original stuff.
Scottish Campion.
I actually was lucky enough to have been able to take 2 classes with her back then.

So now the dilemma.
Although I LOVE the colors and would LOVE to knit it up into something,
I kind of think this yarn is worth more as it is in the resale/ebay market than it is for me to knit it up.
I was checking it out and I think I can get a good sum of cash for it, like maybe $200 if I'm lucky.
IF I'm lucky.
There's a risk of course.
Got to think about this, but it was like stumbling onto a mini bank account you forgot you had.
but Alice Starmore's yarn and patterns are SUPER hot right now.
What would you do?
I'm looking for advice.

Thanks for stopping by and leave me a message.
I'd love to hear what you have to say.
