I was reading Ann Budd's new blog and she was talking about yarn usage and showed these pics (http://annbuddknits.blogspot.com/2010/02/why-im-spoiled-brat2.html#comments)of her friend Bonnie's stash...

All I can say is...My husband cannot complain to me ever again!!!

Wow! http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs9/i/2006/044/a/8/Shock_by_WoodlandSpirit.gif Now that's a STASH!

I was afraid I was getting too much of a stash. I have about 12 projects worth of yarn and patterns. I feel much better now.

02-08-2010, 03:31 PM
WOW thats alot of yarn...I LOVE IT !!!

She could open her own shop with all that! That's crazy!

02-08-2010, 04:29 PM
I feel a bit better about my 2 or so bins. Wow.

With that much stash, how do you remember what you have??

I was just about to say the same thing...I only have a closet and part of a basement...and that is not even scratching the surface

How does she remember what she has? I hope she has it all documented. lol My stash is tiny compared to that. :teehee:

gotta knit

I've got nothing compared to that too.
I just joined ravelry recently, and am worried that posting my tiny stash would be embarassing.

ummn, first thought: FIRE HAZARD
Surely it's not safe to have that much stuff in your house. I thought I was bad with 2 stacking drawer sets and some bags
ETA I know wool doesn't burn, it singes, but if there's any acrylic or blends in there then they'd probably burn and all those plastic boxes as well

02-13-2010, 03:52 PM
You're right. I think an intervention is in order. You could organize a group of knitters to come help her take some of:teehee: it away.

02-13-2010, 05:08 PM
Whaaa??? PERHAPS an intervention is in order?

My bf's old neighbor had a hoarding problem like that(an organized but in extreme excess type of collection) and the county ended up raiding his home and putting him in an institution.

Someone definitely needs to step in at that point.Just wow.:noway:

Wowza!!!! She really could open her own yarn shop! She wouldn't have to buy stock for a while! and My stash is teeny tiny compared to all you guys, let alone her! My stash is one 2' by 1' basket that has my yarn, scissors, needles, and accessories. I lack yarn:)

02-14-2010, 04:44 AM
At least it's clean and put away. :shrug:
I agree about the fire hazard thing though. Time to either intervene or invest in a storage facility. Good luck to her.

The sad thing is, it looks like a lot of it is cheap acrylic and novelty yarn. Not that there's anything wrong with them, but I would think someone would stock up on indie dyers or the yarns that are hard to come by and that sort of thing! And novelty yarn is just that- a novelty. It's going, if not gone, out of style. Maybe she's a clearance junkie (like me) but really. It's time to find a good home for her yarn. I think there's a gazillion charities that would LOVE that yarn!

02-14-2010, 06:10 PM
Holy cow! :yay: Maybe she is just becoming a yarn prepper.

OK, I feel bad. Tonight my husband came in, so proud, with two little fruit bins, saying I could store my yarn in them until he could build the cubbies I want. I shook my head and then showed him my bags of yarn, sorted by weight and color.

He walked back to the bedroom in silence. I'm afraid he's going back over past credit card statements or wondering just what on earth I am planning to make with all the yarn I have.

02-15-2010, 08:55 AM
WOW! I do believe that's the largest stash I've ever seen! I thought I was bad. Now my 9 bins don't sound, or look, too bad!! That's really insanity!

GREAT DAY!! That woman could open a store. It appears that she has more that my Hobby Lobby carries at any one time.

Wouldn't I love to have companies sending me those wonderful yarns. My stash is small because I can't afford to buy a lot at one time. Most of what I make require 16 -22 ounces each.

02-16-2010, 09:27 AM
That looks like a store in the making, lol! If my sons ever saw that they would never give anymore money for yarn,LOL!.
