Hiding your stash?
I read someone else saying they hid their stash from the hubby. I am NOT the only one? Honestly, I have a bin hiding in the guest room closet, a bin in the basement and a tiny tin in my son's room. I also have started a cabinet in the TV stand. And, sometimes I have a drawer full in my office desk (he will never come here so he'll NEVER KNOW!!!). I guess I need to either start knitting this stuff up or start hiding stuff better

I hide it from myself. Every time I get to looking for a certain yarn that I know I bought I have a really tough time finding it.

I don't really hide it per se...I sort of just don't put it out there. This got me in trouble once when my mom came over. I pulled out a plastic bin of yarn and the DBF said "what the he** is that!?" I guess he didn't know the extent of my addiction...silly him!

I am soon getting to the point of needing to hide it .......and I've thought of a great place........the dog bed. It's one of those huge round ones, and I figure it would make great stuffing..........provided, of course, it were properly encased in something to keep the doggie smell out of it...........unless it's yarn made OF dog hair.....then, I hear it wouldn't matter.

LOL. I don't have to TRY to make myself forget, I'd forget my head if it weren't attached!

DH knows I have a stash, and he knows where one bin is. He knows nothing about the bags hiding in the laundry room, or the bag in the trunk of my car that I bought today. My Dh has selective knowledge of my stash.

I can't even possible hide my yarn. My 3 yr old gets into every mini stash I have. I have boxes, bags, baskets, and cabinets full of yarn. My husband has finally agreed that I need built in yarn storage in my craft room. He is going to build built in yarn cubbies like my LYS has. I can't wait!!
