This week I’m thinking a lot about spring cleaning, particularly when it comes to my wreck of an office, which is mostly filled with knitting books, yarn and other craft supplies. I know that I have way too much stuff to store, and also way more stuff than I will probably ever use, and I think I’m about ready to try to part with some of it — more so than I have in the past.
If you’re in need of a little cleanup of your crafty space and stuff, I’ll be sharing lots of tips this week. But first off I want to know how you feel about your yarn stash.
We knitters are so funny in that we hoarde our materials as if merino sheep were about to go extinct. It’s so common to have too much yarn that we even have an acronym for it: SABLE, meaning stash acquisition beyond life expectancy. It’s usually said in a joking, “whoever dies with the most yarn wins” kind of way, but the truth is it’s probably a little unhealthy.
I don’t think I have so much yarn I couldn’t use it all if I tried, but I do have a lot. And it’s kind of overwhelming. And even though I’ve only bought a few skeins this year, it seems like more is always coming in the door (thanks to yarn reviews and the book I’m working on).
So tell me, how do you feel about your stash? You can click multiple replies on the poll, but please leave more details in the comments!
