My Stash

A little over two years ago I inherited a very large stash of yarn. When I say large, I mean bigger than life. When I brought the stash home I filled 19-12 gallon totes. 19 totes of yarn!!! All I could think was what the hell am I going to do with all this yarn?? A year later I sorted again and got it down to 9 totes. I was so proud of myself! But everything was sorted by color, and that sounds great. But when you want to knit a project and need to know what kind of yarn you need all you know is what colors you have. So two years after the yarn took over my house I realized everything should be sorted by weight. So now...what was once 19 totes of yarn that I had no idea what to do with is now 6 totes with tons of projects in mind!

So be prepared, EVERY SINGLE PERSON I KNOW, because you're getting something knit for Christmas!!

Special thanks to Linda Permann,

Priscilla for playing with all the yarn,

And last but not least, Sophie for insisting on sniffing EVERY SINGLE SKEIN OF YARN!
