Unknown stash expansion during cleaning
I have been cleaning house and have found... 3 hanks of Island cotton , 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.

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


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!

Note to self: must get more yarn!

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.
