Stash ???? Posted by Picasa
Ohhhhhhhh No !!!! Did someone say " Stash" ha ha....This is a "Birds Eye View" into my Secret Attic... I have since tried to reorganize the yarn a bit .As you can see I have to knit all the time just to try and get my stash piles down.. The many trips "browsing" around yarn shops have added more to this WONDERFUL sickness of Hoarding . I bought more bins and Now I have it somewhat neater with the sportweight on one side and the worsted on the other side.. Then there is the novelty stuff which is in another bin..I try to keep the same colors of each weight together. P.S. I also try to keep Hubby from going up there... When he does he just shakes his head in disbelief.. I guess he just doesn't understand that it is VERY important to have the right yarn at the right time for a specific project... But then I always seem to be missing that "one" color and I have to DRAG myself down to the yarn shop and reluctently...LOL... buy some more !I'm not going to show you the hall closet or the bins in my porch and the pile next to the couch...Gosh.. Then you might think I was an obssesive yarn hoarder !!! * Grin * Did I just hear someone call me a Yarnacholic?.....Well.. I guess I had better go Knit Something and get that stash down a little !!!!

I love your photo of your stash - if only I got get in there and rummage around and read the labels and squeeze the yarn. Showed the photo to the husband and told him I need to get collecting as I have only a little (that he knows of...). Keep collecting, and love the photo of you knitting outside too - looks idyllic

OK Penny, watch out for the yarn police! They'll be arriving any moment now. I do believe you need to do a stretch at the Hague Prison for Knitters. Hmmmm you might be a "lifer"

*Long sigh of envy and relief* I feel better now. I've been collecting for years and I need to catch up to you!. I know it's not a race or competition, but where'd you find all that, huh? Huh? Can I get some? Huh? What'd you say? ( mwahhahahahah).
Wishing I could roll in your stash, read labels and squeeze yarn, too. :)

I hate to break this to you, but you have a slight problem--you don't have a big enough house for your stash. Rather than buy a larger house, I suggest you send some of your stash to me. :)

Oh. My. Word.

You are my hero. I don't think I've seen a picture like that yet - I wonder how many of us are hiding the true beast that is our stash?!? It's mildly disturbing that I salivate when I look at it....

Marie said...

YES YES YES - I am not the only collector on this earth.

You are truly my long lost stash sister!

You go girl!

PS I think we should start a support group for your anonymous poster and mine!
