Like most knitters, I love yarn. And like most, I have a yarn stash. I never really thought my stash was getting out of control. Any yarn I purchased had an intended project associated with it. But lately, I have been feeling a little overwhelmed when I walk into my yarn room. I also have been having a little trouble remembering exactly what all those projects were. So today I decided I had better organize my room. As I was pulling out all the boxes of yarn that was starting to pile up, I realized I may have a problem.
There was a box full of my favorite yarn from last year’s Black Friday Sale. I found all the beautiful balls of wool perfect for those Fair Isle hats I am going to make. More and more treasures were being discovered in drawers and closets. I even found the yarn for the blanket I was supposed to make for my daughter when she moved into her first apartment (that was at least 3 years ago and she has since moved).
To those of you who are not a yarn enthusiast, you may say I do indeed have a problem with yarn. But after closer inspection of my collection, I realize there is always room for more. 🙂
I would like to be able to show you my before and after pictures at this time. Unfortunately there is still much more work to be done. I have, however, included the progress I have made so far. I do think I’m off to a good start!
