My stash

My SP10 hostess, Kerry, has asked everyone in her group to post a stash photo. Here's mine, arrayed on the futon in our guest room. It's not huge (certainly not compared to some people's stashes...ahem!), but there's more yarn here than I remember owning. Well, that's no entirely accurate: as I unpacked the giant plastic box where I store this stuff, I remembered each ball of yarn as I encountered it, but I couldn't remember all of it without seeing it. Does that make sense? Everything is kept in ziploc bags, mostly so the balls of yarn don't agitate each other and start to unravel and get tangled (yes, the use of ziploc bags here was the result of a Bad Yarn Experience). I thought about it organizing the yarn by type, but then I realized that if I did that I'd have one pile with three sets of sock yarn (I have thus far managed to avoid the Sock Yarn Lust that usually afflicts sock knitters) and a big jumble of Everything Else.

Why Marsha, you do have a bit of stash!

That's awfully nice of you to say that, Katie. But in a stash-off I'm sure you'd win, with your multiple plastic bins. Of course, Gina would just crush both of us with her Wall o' Yarn.

Give it a little more time...the stash will grow before your eyes. :-) And don't forget, sock yarns don't count so you can buy them guilt free. That's what I do. LOL

I should start charging admission to come see "The Great Wall of Yarn of Claymont, Delaware"
