Hi K-A-S Friends.
Oh dear. After seeing this, I think I need to go get some more yarn. I'm obviously way out of champion league stashing. I only have about 30 boxes.
Oh Valerie....thank you for admitting to the size of your stash....I think you and I have about the same amount. My sister, Ros, stopped asking me how much I had....think she didn't want to hear the truth. I will have to send her the pic above and then she will not think me crazy at all.....lol.
I omitted to include all the odd bags scattered in various corners!!!
I do, however, feel virtuous because I give yarn to some of the retirement homes if they need it.....which is why I feel the need to invest in more from time to time to timz to time etc.
I heartily agree with you Christine.
Cath, what about large storage boxes under the bed, if they are very deep and lift the bed off the floor, you could use a little ladder to get into bed....... Do you think hubby would mind or notice??
I went into a charity shop ast week looking for toys for Amy's theme, they didn't have any, but they had yarn....... 2 bags of brand new d/k..... 11 x 100g balls of rust and 5 x 100g balls of purple and pink. So of course I had to buy it; thoughts of 'no space left at home' and 'I don't need it' did enter my head briefly as I was paying for it. The strongest thoughts were planning what I was going to make with it :)))))
Good work, Christine ... you must always "rescue" those skeins of yarn from the charity shops and turn them into useful, warm items. You know they were lonely and sad in the shop, and now they have hope. ... ... or do I need more therapy?
No therapy needed Sharon. You are a normal, kindhearted yarn lover. It's all those awful people who leave the poor little skeins to their lonely fate who need therapy.
OK so I am not sure where I read this and I probably should not be sharing but..........
If you take the bottom drawer out of any chest of drawers there is a space under it that you can use...........
I will say that I have been on a "yarn diet" since the start of the year - well, late December last year really - and I have only given in on two occasions - I used up some loyalty points at my LYS and only paid £1:50 towards the cost of some lovely yarn for my goddaughter's baby and that has been knitted up already and then this last week I found the perfect pattern to knit a top for my Mum, and while I was at it I got some more baby yarn as well. I am astounded at how good I have been....... and have managed to use some stash in the process.
If any of you are on Ravelry, you can see where I store my stash as a WIP in my projects list :p I am KoKoCat on there.
Just took a peek....WOW!!
What a wonderfully stored an curated collection of yarns - how hard the owner must work to keep it so well!
