Over on Twitter a conversation started about the size of our stashes. And bit by bit some of the knitters spread their stashes out to show them to us. So I decided to confront my stash and do the same. I’ve already blogged about my yarn storage solution, and my yarn still lives within it’s bounds, as well as much of my other crafty bits and pieces, so I’m happy with that.
Here we go:
I actually am quite impressed that it’s not as big as I thought it was. I have far roo much fingering weight at the moment (including five skeins of the most divine Coolree alpaca/silk/cashmere blend), so I have a feeling that’s what I’ll be working through for the next few months. I have a few sets of DK weight to do baby stuff and then I have 9 skeins of Mirasol Akapana to do a blanket for me. Other than that it’s all pretty random bits and pieces.
I keep it all in ziplock bags from Ikea, but took it out to photograph. The bags that you can see at the back are the ends of balls that I’ve kept that are leftover from other projects and these are sorted by weight. I’ll eventually work my way through these to knit mice for Pawsitive Knits.
Now lets see your yarn confessions.
*Some peeps are surprised at how small my stash is. And I was too. But then I love the process of picking a pattern and then choosing the yarn to match rather than the other way around.*
