Stash Sneak Peak


The current contest fro SP11 is to "Flash Your Stash"! Now while this is going to end up being VERY FUN - I cannot do it while Mr. Me is within an hour's drive of home. It just wouldn't be good for anyone. His blood pressure would rise to dangerous levels if he ever saw it all together in one place... Words that shouldn't be used in front of the children would probably be spoken...
However - he is going away for a couple of days next week. He will be out of the country! And since Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving, that will give me a whole day to get the stash herded together in one place. I'm hoping for a sunny day on Monday. I may put it all out on the lawn... Or maybe in one of the utility trailers... We have two. I wouldn't need both, but I might need the larger one.
As a bit of a "sneak peak" at my stash, the photo is of my sock yarn stash basket - only full skeins. I have a separate bags for my "bits", and of course you can't see the stuff on the bottom.
Maybe I'll see if I can bury the kids in my stash the way that we used to bury each other in sand at the beach... I've heard that suggested by other knitters and I think it could be fun!

I know that I truly can not compete with stash yarn. I even feel guilty that I have yarn I bought in May for a sweater for 2. I shouldn't feel guilty about yarn that is less than 1 year old. But I do. I can't wait to see your stash. Since my boys are in love with "orange kitties" I looked at that tiger yarn...saw it on ebay this week. Now that I've seen it knit up...I may have to make orange kitty socks for Christmas.

Wow....stash that large? I will be green with envy. I have all of mine in three Rubbermaid 18 gallon totes and the WIP's in three smaller ones......Can't wait to see the pictures!

LOL - I have mine "condensed" into two Rubbermaid under the bed storage boxes. Plus the random bags in the linen closet, in my bureau, etc. my hubby doesn't know about. I'm a little worried about providing photographic evidence.

Love your mini-stash, looking forward to the whole loot. I have a feeling if I put all my stash, in one place, at one time, I would be scared.
