It's Flash Your Stash Day!
And me, without a thing to wear!
When I started knitting, I devoted a very large drawer in a bureau in my living room for knitting supplies and yarn. I promised not to exceed it. We have a small house and I have been working hard to make it feel bigger by having less stuff. I didn't want to undo all my hard work with a few yarn crawls. Also, when I started, I was very frustrated by finding yarn I loved with no pattern or vice versa, so I try to buy specific yarn for specific projects. The only exceptions are saving good leftovers and hardback books that were taking a beating in the drawer.
So here's my drawer:
I do have a few works in progress (in their totes):
New or special skeins, I like to display in the iron bird bath beside the bureau (now starring the recent Kool Aid fever results):
And that's it. Really.
I am really shocked by the sheer amounts of yarn that others have accumulated. It makes me a little nauseous to think of how much money and space all the excess consumes (not to mention the burden of work left undone calling to you from the depths of your stash). I can't live like that, so this is what works for me.
Down with the stash!
