Stash update: Not quite big enough to roll around in

Another yarn order arrived today, and there was much rejoicing. I’ve officially run out of allocated space for all this stuff and will need to reorganise a bit when time allows, but in the meantime my dream of having a stash big enough to dive into Scrooge McDuck-style is one step closer to reality.

DROPS Karisma dark grey mix

This grey wool (DROPS Karisma dark grey mix) is new and just arrived today. It’s earmarked for an awesome scarf for boyfriend. He knows he’s getting a scarf, but doesn’t know anything else so I’ll refrain from linking the pattern. Suffice to say it’ll be awesome, and will let me have a go at cables for the first time too.

This stuff all turned up today too. Two different brands that will hopefully knit to the same gauge, since we were colour matching on a budget. No points for guessing what I’m making out of these.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

And now for the money shot:

Yarn stash 28/03/2013

The chunky stuff at the top right was my first ever yarn purchase, for my misguided attempt at a $5 in Paris jumper. It has a special place in my heart. Around the top and left are various cottons and the purple cotton/acrylic blend going into my wedding bolero. Must think of something to use up more of that yellow. Hmm. Maybe some sort of gloves to go with my cowl . . .

Yarnporn over, time for me to get back to work!

    I never thought I’d ever be in the position where I thought my house lacked a dedicated wool room. Erm, yarn. Fancy string!

    Hi, I came here from Rav. Your yarn stash looks a little like mine. I don’t have a lot unless I’m working on a project. Otherwise it all fits in one bin that sits on the floor next to my desk. I’m curious about your Sirdar yarn; is that acrylic or a natural fiber? I really like the look of it.

    I can almost imagine how lovely it would be to jump int a pool of wool- like a cloud. It’s amazing how quickly stash acquisition happens. It’s like you learn to knit, and the next thing you know, your’re insulating your home with yarn.
