As I mentioned last time, one of my resolutions is to knit from my stash and not buy any new yarn until Rhinebeck. Now I feel it's time to really own up to how huge my stash has become. Those of you on Ravelry can view my
shame stash here. That's right, 190 items. Crazy!
Since not everyone is on Ravelry yet, here are a few pictures that show my stash in all it's glory.
On the top row, left to right, we have my best yarns (which are the centerpiece on my coffee table), my sock yarns, and miscellaneous "nice yarns" in the back with (mostly) lace weight yarns in in the little baskets in front. In the second row we have wools yarns in front and sweater yarns in back (plus a little un-dyed sock yarn), lace-weight yarns, and a big old bag of Lion Brand yarns along with some old acrylic from my grandmother's stash.
Yipes, that's a lot of yarn! I'm not sure how this happened. It's not like I went on yarn binges. I guess it's like gaining weight - a nibble here and a snack there, and before you know it your pants are all tight. Same with the yarn. A skein here and a ball there, and before you know it, you have 46.88 miles of yarn in your house. That's right. Almost 47 MILES!!!!
Maybe my yarn diet should last until 2015!!
