the stash

Yesterday, I had a free day. My jury duty was cancelled! Yeah!! So I decided that as a house cleaning project, I really should organize and re-stash my stash. It was slowly taking over the whole house! Not too hard to believe when you see the photos - keep in mind that there are no before and after - there is just multiple photos because I could not fit it all in one. There was yarn that I had forgotten that I had, that I knew I had but couldn't find, that is for a project that was next on my list and then got pushed down because there was something else I HAD to make, and then there was just yarn. After 5+ hours it is now all organized into 8 bins and two
xxl zip lock bags. I know that I have all the yarn that I need for making all the christmas presents that I had planned - yeah!! There was even the gold sparkly yarn that my mom requested in her knucks (scary but true). Hopefully, I can keep it nice and organized and use some of my stash up! Now I remember why I am on a yarn diet -- it is either that or opening up my own yarn store with what lives under my bed! :)

you know, I must thank you. My stash looks painfully tiny compared to yours. I was able to convince my husband that we truly are NOT drowning under a sea of yarn...you have way more than me! Muahahaha...Bless your little knitty heart! You have saved me!
