When does having a stash become having an obsession?
I counted my stash balls (if there is such a phrase) recently and have to report that the total comes to a three digit number. This is particularly embarrassing as I have only been crocheting for a little over 2 years, and at that point my stash was zero.
Some of it is rather precious to me – there are balls of yarn from discontinued lines and discontinued colours that I think are irreplaceable:
Some of it just looks as if it might come in useful some day:
And some of it I know should go. (I don’t mean actually throwing it away – there is an excellent knitting group locally who do wonders with unwanted yarn)
So here is the deal. Without revealing exactly what the number is, when I blog a new project I will report on whether I have managed to reduce my stash or added to it, and that way I might embarrass myself into making it a slightly smaller number!
How big is your stash – or is it a secret?
