I've been fooling myself.

Since I only started knitting last year, and I'm a frugal gal, I assumed that I had not amassed much of a stash. I only buy when I get a good deal, I'm particular about what I buy, etc. But my eyes have been opened: I decided to repurpose an armoire to make it home to all my knitting paraphernalia. Until now, it's mostly been in those giant Ziploc bags in my basement on some shelves. A little here, a little there, a little on the bookcase in my den. I had no idea I owned this much yarn.

Now I know that this is a paltry showing compared to many fiber addicts, but I really am very cheap. And picky. And I only began knitting in earnest less than a year ago. I'd better get the old needles humming if I want to reclaim my "non-stasher" title. Or maybe I never deserved the title in the first place.


  1. Pfft, that's nothing.

    My stash is spread out all over the damned house, otherwise I'd snap a picture for you.

  2. I think I have more than that too, but don't know how to get a proper picture. I can show the storage unit that it fills up, though.

  3. It's amazing how little a stash seems when it's spread among many different locales. Whenever someone asks me how much stash I have, my response is always, "Oh, not that much, just 3 large plastic totes. And a basket in the living. And another basket in the living room. And a box in the office. And. And. And."

  4. Embrace the stash! Think of all the possibilities inherent in that yarn....

  5. Pssshtah...

    The fact that you have your stash in such a neat little closet makes you a step above my "whoar-dinger" of an I too started knitting a bit over a year ago and my stash is like a hidden liquor bottle, shoved in every closet and tupperware box I can find ;). Miss you miss Norm.
