OK, so compared with some people - a LOT of people - my stash is actually relatively small.
Several years ago, being somewhat appalled by how much yarn was sitting around not being used, I stopped the random acquisition phase. No more trips to the yarn shop for fun. No more bringing home something just because it was pretty. No more sale yarn. No more I might need this someday. Nope, I made a decision to ONLY buy yarn that I needed for specific projects that I intended to start right away, and I've done a darn good job of sticking to that.
Which means that I often forget what's tucked away inside of my yarn cabinet. (The old dresser that lived in the girls' nurseries.)
Which means that periodically I need to unpack everything, lay it out, and have a good, long look at what I've still got in there. (This is not as much fun as my old yarn naps - when the yarn lived under my bed and I would pull the bins out, open them up on top of the bed, and then take a wee nap with all of that possibility. It's good for the soul. and for the dreams.)
The good news is that I long ago got rid of any superfluous yarn. There's nothing left that I don't love, and that's a very good thing.
I thought you might like to see what's in there. Maybe we should play a game of "How Much Can Kristin Knit Up in 2015?" Could be fun! Could make me crazy. But it could be fun!
The sock yarn
I've got ideas for some of it....Hmmmmm......
Tomorrow, the rest...including a massive pile of handspun which I have been avoiding for the most ridiculous reason of it being too nice to knit with. (Silly me.)
