Today I cleaned out my stash, because, er, it wasn’t really fitting in its boxes anymore.
The starting point:
That’s five boxes, one very clever little footrest/storage thing, one adorable green polka dot case, and one canvas tote. One of the boxes and most of the footrest contained scrap yarn and STUFF, so I started by emptying the footrest, and putting in…
… my (okay, my mum’s) old straights, as well as my fibre and spindle from the 10 minutes I spent trying to learn how to spin…
… and all the scrap yarn! Footrest is officially the scrap box.
As for the rest? Er, well….
This is my stash as of today, 19 May 2013. Or, as I need to remind myself, THE REASON I SHOULD NOT BUY ANY MORE YARN.
Colour coordinated. For some reason it’s a bit green heavy….
One box of neutrals.
One box of variegated.
One box of reds, purples and purpley/true blues.
One box of greens. (I think of this one as “the lesser greens”. Don’t tell the yarn, it may hurt their feelings.)
Another box of greens. (These are the small boxes, though. I’m trying to convince myself this makes it better.)
And finally, the “elite” greens in the polka dot case.
Tadah! Everything is in the boxes! Success! I’m trying very hard to tell myself that there being more space in two of the green storage units is NOT a reason to buy more green yarn. I will make it my mantra. No more green yarn. No more green yarn! No more – oh, who am I kidding. Green yarn is my cryptonite.2
