Coming clean about my Stash

OK. It is time to come clean and show my stash to the world... Here it is:




When our friend Suzanne invited us to "flash our Stash" on our Ravelry group I didn't imagine it was going to be such an inspiring experience. Actually, I was a little embarrassed to show people how much yarn I had... specially my husband, but he is a good guy and I am sure he will understand when he reads this post... right? Honey?...

I must admit that after taking the pictures I found some more wool in a drawer and there is a bag a Rowan Tweed wool missing in action but I am sure I will find it. Not only this is a great opportunity to reorganize and classify my yarn but it has giving me so much inspiration as to what to knit next. For instance, I was sure I didn't have any aran weight yarn and I discovered that the bags of Elsebeth Lavold Classic Al that I have, are all Aran weight. It is just so true that you put things away and then forget what you have, so in the same way that I try to do laundry and organize my closet before I go shopping for clothes, for now on I will go through my stash before shopping for yarn. :-)

The pictures of the bed show my good brand name yarns.

My acrylics live under the bed here:












And my sock yarn and lace weight live in the closet here:


















And of course that is without counting the yarn that I have for sale on Ebay:


I thought about detashing a little but I don't think I could part with any of it...
I love my stash!!!

Hi. The Easyy Garter Stitch Shawl pattern is a free download on Ravelry, if you are on there.
