That's about how much yarn is in my stash! :shock: :woot: I made a spreadsheet with all my yarn (brand, type, color, yardage, weight, etc) and was surprised to see I had *that* much!!

Oh and I have just over 4,400 in mmmmalabrigo! :cheering:

See, I love the attitude with which you embrace your stash. Where some would be like "too much, must diet!", you, you do the clappy smiley! :cheering:

:teehee: It's kind of all spread out in different parts of my closet. So it doesn't *seem* like a lot. A lot of it has been purchased through a sale that enablers, eh um, I mean people have posted about here. Things like the lace weight yarn is over 400 yards for one skein but is so tiny!

And I figure I really can't ever have TOO much mmmmm!!

Anyway, my name is Kristin and I am a yarn addict! :cheering: (and proud of it!)

very cool! Maybe one day I'll try to see how much I have...I'd have to keep it quiet though--that's all I need is for dh to find out how much yarn I REALLY have!! :rofl:

Wow, I can't exactly visualize how much that is but I'm glad you're happy.

I am a little concerned about the whole spread sheet thing. You must be totally organized. Like, totally. :shock:

DH has no idea there is that much!! He would freak out!!

newamy - actually I am far from organized. It has taken me a long time to do the spreadsheet. I actually was determined to finish the other day.

If anyone wants to use a blank copy let me know!!

I hope my stash grows up to be just like yours! :rofl:

Did you create a basic Excel spread sheet? Did you imput variables that automatically calculate yardage per brand/ type/color & then another for total yardage? Just curious as I play around in Excel.

Hmmm. I'm wondering... I may use your spreadsheet idea and create an Access database. That way, I can create a template form to enter the data. I then can create easier to manage reports as well as select yarns by yardage, weight, type, recommended needle size, gauge, color, company, when purchased, LYS or Internet.

Off to see if someone already has such a program out there already so I don't waste time reinventing the wheel.

ETA: There is a product called: NeedleTrax (http://www.needletrax.com/Features.htm) that does all I mentioned & more.

It's nothing too fancy. I just have a field for # of skeins and then a field for yardage per skein. Then next to that I put the total (well I used a formula). Very simple. I got the idea from someone's blog. She had the spreadsheet she used and I customized it for me.

I dont even want to know how many yards I have waiting...right off the top of my head I know I have 6,000yds of alpaca, and 3 huge storage bins, and several loose bags, oh and the 10 skeins of MMmmm. And I just ordered 7,500yds of bamboo to add to the stash :oops: .

You are a brave woman to face the stash head-on like that :teehee:

I would create a spreadsheet or database for my yarn, but I just can't get interested in such a small project. :rofl:

I really need to hit a yarn shop someplace. Amazingly enough, in a reasonably sized town such as this there isn't a single LYS. If I could afford it, I'd come off the road and open one.

Your yarn would reach 0.0045% of the way to the moon! :)

(if the moon is 238,900 miles away and there are 1,760 yards in a mile, and if I did the calculation right!)

Wow! $30! :shock: I made mine for free!!

ANd I guess I can add to that since I *had* to stop at AC Moore on the way home today. 2 skeins of Patons Classic and a bag of mystery yarn later.....let's just say I'm probably at 20,000 now!

Bad Kristin, bad, bad girl! :roflhard: :roflhard:

What your DH doesn't know won't hurt him! (Or if you have enough yarn, maybe it will :rofl: )
