View Full Version : Unknown stash expansion during cleaning

03-25-2007, 10:26 AM
I have been cleaning house and have found... 3 hanks of :heart: Island cotton :heart: , 5 skeins of Caron SS, 7 sugar and creams in assorted colors, 2 balls of cashsilk, 7 spools of ribbon, 7 big balls of bulky acrylic meant for kid scarves, 3 balls of GGH mystik, 4 large balls of a beautiful brown/aqua boucle, and one hank of sock yarn...all of which I had put in various closets and forgotten. :oops:

In short, I have increased my stash by 1/4 without ever leaving the house. :eyebrow: Now I have 4 huge plastic storage totes filled with yarn.

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
I can not believe I was disappointed that I couldn't go yarn store hopping today. I'm obsessed, I tell you. OBSESSED!!!

Your "forgotten" stash is bigger than my entire stash! :teehee:

Note to self: must get more yarn!

Nothing like "free" shopping, eh?

:oops: Um, I've got *at least* a couple totes' worth in my car that somehow hasn't made it into the house yet. (shh, it's my secret hiding place! :teehee:

Ahhh but you must clean to unearth such beautiful treasures!!! Muahhahahaaaa :twisted:

Found some fingering weight baby acrylic and a ball of malabrigo, too.

And assorted needles, a row counter, needle tips, my favorite crochet hook, beads, and a couple UFO's too. :oops:

I must admit... just finding the malabrigo made it all worth it.

What kind of purse would that be? Cause I sure never find any chocolate in MINE....just the empty wrappers. :roflhard:
