I’m planning a bigger yarn purchase and I figured I should make room in the freezer for that yarn. I took out all the yarn I’ve accumulated there lately, and apparently never moved to the stash, and it filled the entire living room table. I have a few kits here and a huge amount of mini-skeins (we should really talk about mini-skeins one day, I love them) and some other things. If you don’t count mini-skeins and kits I counted 44 skeins of yarn that have been hiding in my freezer. Some of it are from last summer (it was a hot summer and I was sleep deprived, standing by the freezer was a treat) and the rest has been accumulated over the past year. Crafts fair, yarn club, webpages. None of it has been bought in a store.
A part of me tells me to stop hoarding and another part says that it’s good to have a lot of yarn, you never know when you’ll need it. With that being said, I really wish I had more knitting time so that I could actually make a dent in the stash that is noticeable.
There is also the question about what to do with all the hand knits. I have so many shawls I can’t fit them in my closet anymore. What should I do with them? I’m not ready to part with them but soon I need to take care of the problem. I guess the family should expect more hand knits coming there way in the future.
