MY LIFE WITH A 10 YEAR OLD AND MY OBSESSIONS....SEWING and KNITTING!

My own personal Stashalong

I missed the deadline for the official Stashalong so I'm starting my own "unofficial" one! My yarn hording has gotten completely out of control, and I am broke!! The old man doesn't know this.....I have lead him to believe that I have not purchased yarn beyond my means! It has gotten so bad that I had to spend my Target gift card that I got for my birthday on groceries! Now that's bad! Everytime I see a new project on another blog I want to knit it, so I go ahead and purchase all the supplies without thinking about what I already have.

So.....I will only knit from my stash for the next......I don't know how many months! I'm going to try to keep up with the real Stashalonger's.....that would be April!
This is my organized yarn stash which occupies a nice little corner in my dining room. It is all nicely arranged by yarn type and/or project. I think this is enough yarn to last me a while!

Woohoo! You're as bad as me. :) I love all of this self validation when other people show their stash. :)

Stashalong sister!

First - thank you! Thank you for letting my hubby see that I am not the only one with a basket of knit stuff right by me wherever I am sitting. Your pic in the last post was like a scene out of my house.

I have this basket that is right by my knitting seat. I clean it out maybe every other month or so. It slowly overflows and strangely enough - sometimes the basket makes other baskets. With more yarn stuff. That I must have by my side. Its a law I think. :)

And secondly - to Noey - I have not forgotten about Harry Elephante. He's currently waiting for the uhm, Dr to perform the necessary plastic surgery. The Dr has been distracted lately... but promise... I won't forget.
