I've been reading this thread since it began but have been unsure if I should jump in. I realized yesterday that I spend more time reading about knitting than actual knitting! Maybe if I got off my computer chair and did something about the stash, it would reduce.
I don't have a huge stash. It all fits in a Rubbermaid tub. I don't have a lot of storage space so I determined early on that the yarn could never outgrow the tub. As it stands right now, I have to push on that lid pretty hard to get it to close.
On Friday I started a ballband dishcloth using leftover yarn from a dishcloth KAL group I'm on. Just ten more rows to go. It along with another dishcloth is going to my MIL as thanks for some sewing she did for me. I also have socks started from Silver's web site. The sock yarn has been in the tub for over a year.
I'm going to the Upper Valley Fiber Fest in Troy, OH in a few weeks. I want to get some of this outta here so I can buy a little something there.
