Stash and other things...

Happy's still Saturday, right? My days are so mixed up right now that I don't know which end is up.

First of all, I still can't post photos of what I sent my swap partner because I don't know if she's received the package yet. Second of all, although I've photographed what she sent me, I'd like to take a better photograph before I post.

So, on to other things...

I've been spending the last couple of evenings going through my yarn. I've gotten through a total of five bins, three bags, two drawers, and a basket of yarn...and it's all photographed and online in my Ravelry Stash. Currently, I have 258 skeins of yarn listed...and 22 for sale/trade. I still have three bins and a cabinet of yarn to go through. *sigh*

Once that's finished, I'm going to be harsh on my stash. I have a lot of yarn...and some of it has got to go. I wish I could say right now what I plan to keep or sell but it's not that easy. I have a love affair with my yarn...

But, I need to make room for my spinning fibers...

Oh, and I might have a WIP Wednesday project to share this week....check back and see.

And on a cute note...Little Man in the Baby Surprise Jacket that was made for him (it's still a little big and he likes to chew on the bear buttons). As you can see, he's quite active...


  1. Hmmm...stash...yes I have quite a bit myself, SABLE a few times over...but the Hubs has taken to calling it my retirement he say when I finally retire, I won't have the money always to buy yarn when I want it..

  2. You did an exceptional job on his jacket. Great, happy boy colors.
    I used to scoff at keeping track of the stash and logging it onto Ravelry. But now after reading your post, I see the light and need to work on doing that for mine so I know what I have and so I can start using up the stash.

  3. I should probably mention that I didn't make the jacket...someone made it for him, just not me.
