After getting in to www.raverly.com I decided that it was time to clear my stash room.
The pictures show only a minuscule part of the yarn collection. Let's say that an hour has 60 minutes, and a minute has how many seconds? so, imagine all the seconds in an hour, and we can start talking about the quantity of my yarn stash.
I have done a lot of freeform crocheting and knitting, thus I have many odd skeins of yarn, also odds and ends, so no real selling possibilities here. I was dreaming about e-bay, but then remembered that Revenue Canada is after e-bay sellers, so forget that one for me. I just organize and weep. There will be some yarn donated to my craft groups.
I looked at the piles and wept. Took some bags into the living room, dumped the bags on the floor and started. I got "all" sock yarns into two plastic containers.
Well, today I found some more sock yarn. Somehow I feel that I will find more, although I have not been a sock knitter until this year.
The title of this yarn is "Stash Organizing" Organizing being a word that hardly ever appears in my vocabulary. I have had amazingly frustrating moments with this stash, but also amazingly happy moments, specially when I have found yarns that I forgot I had. As in Lion Brand Suede, which had cost me a small fortune, because I was going to make a Desert poncho, some time ago.
I am sure I have done quite a bit of it, because I only found half of the yarn I had bought. I will find the WIP of the poncho, as I sort out the mess.
Right now I am seriously thinking of going to Zellers and getting some of those not so expensive plastic containers, because plastic bags just don't stack nicely.
