I have a very large stash. At the moment I have 946 types of yarn stashed on Ravelry. I am trying to remember to update it and stash as soon as I get new yarn. Doesn't always happen, but I've been working on it off and on the past couple of days. I really only post pictures of higher end yarn and not "big box" yarn. I have a lot of big box yarn, as I never walked by a sale without buying something and I do use acrylic....Not so much Red Heart anymore, but Bernat, Caron and I Love This Yarn.
But I also have a problem. I belong to several "yarny" groups on Rav, too. As soon as I hear a yarn praised, I must have!
Creatively Dyed. She was my first indie dyer that I bought multiple yarn from. I have gifted a skein or two and also made fingerless gloves and a nook cover and still have a healthy ball left. That skein is not pictured.
String Theory, gorgeous feeling yarn. Bought all of this at Stiches in 2009. Nope, not made a thing with it..Sundara Yarn, love her colors. Cherry Blossom, limited edition, gauranteed to make me buy!Wildflower Whimsy, used to be Zen String. See that skein on the right? It’s called Secret Garden, after my favorite book! I lusted after this, but could find none for sale, finally won this one an one of the Rav threads. I was thrilled! Then I bought some more…Miss Babs, I purchased these at Stitches this year…Love the Mums on the right and the gorgeous feel of the two left ones…
Madelinetosh, I blame Lori for this one, although I might have had a skein or two before I saw her beautiful work with this yarn.
There are many more that I would like to buy and I have many single skeins of a lot of different independent dyers. I try to support the indie, as much as possible.
The Hubs said the other day, that it’s kinda like I’m saving up for retirement. I’ll have all this yarn when I retire and won’t have to spend the money then! LOL…So yeah, this is my retirement plan!
Sorry for the sucky pictures, as it snowed again today..hence why I’m home and not off preparing malleable minds for the future….or for all the testing we have coming up…yuck! And I did not link, as I was too lazy to look them all up….
