The Stash...

We all know I have a big stash.

1.5 years working in a yarn shop added a lot to it.

Mom stumbling onto a windfall of yarn and sending me two suitcases full really stepped things up.

It's really really out of hand.

To the point that I know I have stuff in there and I couldn't tell you where it is...

Some of you may know and some of you may not know that Ravelry has a fancy little tool where you can log your stash so you have quick reference to your yarn and when you see a project you like it'll tell you that you have the yarn that will work for it.

So, taking a deep deep breath.
I'm pulling the whole stash this weekend and I'm going to photograph and log the whole thing.

It's definitely going to take the whole three days.

However, I think that in the long run I'll be happy I did, especially since I have a lot of sweaters I want to knit for myself this year and I'm 99.9% certain I have all the yarn for it.

I just need to find it.

You might want to send prayers and thoughts to D. I'm not quite sure he's ready for the stash to take over the dining room, living room, and part of the kitchen.

Then again, he has a shed full of race car parts.

Mine is prettier.

Pretty impressed you are doing it in one weekend. I'd do one or two totes a week, so I didn't get overwhelmed.

I have a ton of yarn and fiber, at least you have yours all nicely put away in bins. Mine is just packed to the gills on an Ikea shelf in my knitting room. I worry about it constantly. I saw a silverfish in my kitchen sink the other day which I haven't seen EVER in my house. I'm really nervous now! I thought about putting all my stuff into Ravelry too, but I don't have that kind of patience. Good luck!
