I’m really glad that you all like the newly organized computer/fiber/book space. It feels great to have it done, I can tell you that.
I’ve noticed a theme that keeps coming up in the comments for this post, however. I keep hearing that I don’t have much of a stash. In my defense, I have to say that I have a difficult time buying yarn for which I have no plan. This is probably why I have so much sock yarn – you don’t need a plan for sock yarn. So, I am soliciting advice on how to buy yarn when you don’t know what you’re going to do with it. Those of you with big ole stashes, how did you accomplish this? And how do you decide how much to buy of a particular yarn when you don’t know what it’s going to become? Hmmmm?
In the meantime, however, I’ve been called an amateur! My stash has been labeled anemic! I’ve been ridiculed about the size of both my yarn and fiber stashes! I have been challenged to increase the size of the stash! Well, I’ve never been one to ignore an outcry of this magnitude. You all have thrown down the proverbial gauntlet and I’m grabbing it. I am therefore announcing a new program over here at Carole Knits, at the suggestion of Chris. It’s the Increase-Your-Stash-Along! My buddy Dave is joining me and he even created this nifty button:
(you know the drill, please save to your own server, yada yada yada)
There’s only one rule and it’s pretty simple. You must buy yarn.
