Not my blog, but I love taking polls, especially if knitting-related:

This was my vote:

I have a reasonable stash and I'm comfortable with it. 40%

I'm not sure what a large stash of yarn is considered to knitters! :lol:

My vote was for the 4th Option "I have a small-ish stash and wouldn't mind increasing, if I could afford to". My stash almost fills an 18-gal plastic rubbermaid tote/bin.

i went with the reasonable stash. it seems a little out of control because their is no organization to it but i don't think it is a LOT...

of course my mother has filing cabinets full of cross stitch books that she will never ever get to so maybe my perception is a bit skewed. :rollseyes:

I went with "I have a reasonable stash and I'm comfortable with it."

I have a lot of yarn but 90% of it has a final purpose. I don't like buying a lot of yarn that I don't know what I'm going to do with. Some of it is for projects far into the future - then I can fondle it for a little while! ;)

I thought I had a lot, but after seeing some of yours I had to say mine was smallish. :lol:

Mine is definitely on the small side, although it increases exponentially sometimes. I'm so looking forward to having a yarn budget.

Now....ya'll all make me sound like I have a whole bunch of yarn & I bet I don't have nearly as much as ya'll...except for Carol, she was very honest...I think ya'll are bluffing :roflhard: :rofling: :roflhard:

I have a feeling there are more #2's here than y'all are admitting! :lol:

I have a smallish stash...and I feel so....inadequate. What would Freud say? I think I have "stash envy." ;)

I submit the following evidence to back up my answer! :P in an effort to do SOME organizing this weekend this is where the majority of the stash has ended up at the moment. the only thing missing is a container of oddballs and some Lornas Laces that i got in the mail recently. i am still staring at that! ;)

when i first started knitting i couldn't imagine needing more yarn than what is in that basket in the front there! :doh:

Okay, here's mine in all it's glory. I do have a couple skeins of donated yarn and the ball that I'm working on now out, but that's it. ;)

I have no idea how you keep your cats (I'm assuming because of your quote) out of that, Jan! It's like a gigantic cat play thing!

Thanks Carol and Sandra! I got the storage thingy at Ikea! It was $3.99! We had to put in a strong eyebolt and then DH had to sew the velcro ends together because apparently yarn is heavy! :shock: :lol:

Ikea (http://purrcat-jan.smugmug.com/photos/8222007-S.jpg)
The REAL Ikea link!!!!! (http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?topcategoryId=15567&catalogId=10103&storeId=12&productId=47368&langId=-1&parentCats=15567*15661*16260)

As for the cat...when we first put it up she was curious and nosed it a bit, but she never did try to get into it. It's about 18 in off the floor. She is 15 though so I imagine a kitten would be a nightmare! :shock: :roflhard:

Oh. My. Goodness. :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: I have no idea how it happened! Anyway I added the correct link and left the wrong one so it would make sense. That is my photo btw... from Chinatown in NYC. :lol:

This is my "yarn cellar" I call it that because I used wood cubes designed for wine cellars. The old piano is not really worth saving and a friend who is a piano tuner said they make great desks/work tables!

The plan it to gut the piano and turn the keybord and behind it into a desktop with built in bookcase and small drawer (think old pharmacy box) storage.

The underneath would have doors added (that slide open) and I could store MORE yarn and stuff there.

We won't mention how many bins of yarn, boxes of cones, and sweaters (waiting their turn to be stash once they are reclaimed) are not shown in this picture. 8-) In my defense ;) my daughters shop in my yarn cellar and I suspect I'll have granddaughters doing the same in a few years. So this is a multi-person stash!

Have we seen a pic of Ing-A-Ling's stash?!
I don't wanna take a pic of mine bc it's in bins under the bed and in the bottom drawer and cabinet of the entertainment center in the bedroom...in other words, too hard to take it all out ;)...cause it's finally organized (sorta)
