Yarn Stash

We went to the Container Store and BBB today to buy some containers so I could, in Pooh’s words, “contain my mess.”  We live in NYC.  In a small apartment, with only two closets.  There’s just no way I can have everything I need (want) without some of it overflowing.  Add to that my tendency to not throw things away, and finally I had to admit that a purging and reorganization of our (my) possessions was needed.

Part of the problem is stuff like the yarn stash. Have you been in a yarn store?  All those colors and textures, the wall to wall bins filled with yarns.  If I got just one skein of that gorgeous yarn…there’s always something I could make with it, right?

Since I had to pull them all out from their various bags to put away in my new Container Store bin, I went ahead and did an inventory.

[Greys]
3  Lion Brand Cashmere Blend (silver)
1  Cascade 220 Wool (grey heather)
1  Bernat Softee Chunky (light grey)
1  Cascade Ecological Wool ( charcoal, leftover)
1  Patons Chunky Tweed (dark charcoal)

[Blues & Misc]
1 Catalina Baby Alpaca Wool (purple)
3  mystery yarns (light blue, green, light brown-sale bin, no tag)
1  Cascade 220 Wool (navy)
1  Debbie Bliss Cashmerino (beige)
1  Patons Chunky Tweed (dark brown)

[Reds and Pinks]
1 Catalina Baby Alpaca Wool (fuschia)
1  Cascade 220 Wool (coralish fuschia?)

2  Sheep Shop Yarn Company, Sheep #2

[Baby Hat Yarn]
4 Bernat Baby CottonTots (pink, blue, yellow and “pastel dreams”)

After seeing it all out like this, really, it isn’t that much, is it??  =D

    have pooh watch an episode of hoarders, and he’ll know just how good he has it!!!

    i don’t have nearly as big a yarn stash…then again, i don’t seem to knit as much as you do. i can’t remember the last time i finished a project. this motivates me to bulk up my arsenal (just what roo doesn’t want to hear). 😉

    i think if pooh watched hoarders he’d first have a cow, then take preventative measures and make me throw out even more stuff!!
