Stash pictures?
Hi - I searched the threads, but couldn't find anything, though I'm baffled, because I know we all love pics of our yarn.

Anyone want to post pictures of their yarn stashes just for fun? Or was this recently done?

I always like doing this. It gives people something to show their dh when they're accused of having too much. This doesn't include three other bins and another big laundry bag. Oh, and two other pop up hampers that I've filled. I'm obsessed.

Oh I was just thinking about doing this....although I'll have to wait until DH leaves, he will think I am totally INSANE for photographing YARN, especially yarn that isn't doing anything at the moment, i.e. not a work in progress.

Actually it was part of plan to go through my stash and create some plans for some of this stuff...to make room for new of course!

I do both. The biggest thing I have to refrain from doing is buying just a few balls of something because I love it. I don't need that many scarves. :rollseyes: But what I end up doing instead is always buying enough for a sweater in the largest size possible, just in case. It certainly adds up!

As a beginning knitter and a broke college student, I do not yet have a "stash". However, Ingrid is an inspiration, and I may have to go out and blow some cash on some yarn for a sweater I might want to make someday.

I don't know if I'm setting a good example or a bad example. :rofling:

Well, I think you're setting a wonderful example, but my future husband might disagree with me a little....

Good example for the knitter,
Bad example for the husband/wife who has to deal with the yarn obsession.
