So here are the pics of my stash as promised - please don't faint!
This is my Small Stash
Lots of leftovers that I sorted out in different weights. Mostly for hats and baby booties. See the cotton bin? I've going to make baby bibs and the Surplice Sweater from the Mason Dixon book.
This is my Medium Stash
Alot of this yarn was gifted to me by my sis who "destashed" her collection. She's downsizing preparing for a move this year. Some of this yarn is from my thrift store bargains or leftovers from last year's projects.
There are also some WIP's hiding in the bottoms - some just need buttons - I hate sewing on buttons.
Some just need a few more rows, like blankets I have started....
I have come to the conclusion that although I like making blankets, I don't do well in completing a blanket that is one piece - I do better with squares or strips and then join.
So I've got to finish up some of those one piece blankets - groan......
The BIG Stash! Yes this is ALL mine :) 1970's to now.
Some of these bins contain very, very old UFO's. So they're not all harboring "free" yarn.
Sometimes I look at an old UFO and wonder "what was I thinking?" - and I have no problem frogging and freeing up the yarn for something else.
Knitting from these will be saved for last, as I resolve to knit up the stash in the mesh bins first.
Then I will pull out a bin and work on that ONLY - that's the plan that I hope to follow.
Current WIP is Calorimetry from Knitty and I finished another pair of baby booties yesterday.
Old Wip is the Rectangle Blanket from earlier this year.
I've been ok working on TWO projects at the same time - hope I don't catch a bad case of "startitis"!
