flash your stash!

I signed up for Flash Your Stash day pretty late, and also haven't conquered the whole "button" thing, but here goes anyway:


Above is the stash that I'll admit to having. It fits in three under-the-bed containers, and that seems like a reasonable amount, doesn't it? I didn't have a lot of time to unpack all of the layers, but I think that you can get the idea. It's a goodly amount of yarn.


This is the stash that I don't admit to having. It doesn't have a nice storage space. It's in random bags in our spare room/office. I use a lot of the heavy zipper bags that sheets and linens come in; they work beautifully for holding a single project at a time. I found the Cotton-Ease on super-sale in December and went a little bonkers. But there are so many cute cute sweaters in the Miss Bea's books that I had to stock up while I could.

How does your Hubby feel about all of the yarn stash? Well, we have an agreement. He doesn't say anything about the yarn, and I don't say anything about the wine. (He's in the Biz, so there is a reason behind all of the wine beyond the fact that we just really like it.



The top picture, again, didn't cooperate. Tilt your head. One note about the yarn and wine: most skeins cost well under $10, and I don't think that Hubby can say that about the wine. Ha!

I like the we don't talk about the yarn, or the wine compromise. Beautiful stash.

Bertha said...

Wow, look at all the cotton-ease! Score! Nice stash!

Kat said...

Both stashes are impressive. Doesn't your yarn need some fancy furniture like the wine has?

Wendy DG said...

Completely understandable categories: "the stash I admit" and "the stash I don't admit." I'm impressed you could photo the latter at all. You're a better woman than I!
