Yarn Addiction

Hello, my name is Mari and I am addicted to yarn. It all started when I began knitting in 2008, while living in Armenia. Until recently everything I owned could fit into just a few suitcases. But this year we moved back to the US, and I began designing much more 'officially' and ever since my yarn stash has exploded. My yarn has been sort of spread out. Some here, some there, in the closet, in a suitcase, in a basket, in a few tote bags. Well, we're moving in a couple of weeks so I put all of my yarn into a box for moving... it doesn't all fit.

Now don't let this picture deceive you. This box is at least 3 feet long, and 1.5 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. Also, I have another basket of yarn that wouldn't fit and isn't  pictured for current projects I'm working on. So, make me feel better by telling me that you have way more yarn than I do!

  1. Ha ha! I might be able to compete - back in April I took some pictures for Knitting and Crochet blog week - you can see the post here: http://buttonsandbeeswax.com/3kcbwday1-colour-lovers/

    Suffice it to say I haven't made my way through much of it since then! (And yes I'm still thinking about buying more.)

  2. I've been on a mission to use up much of my old stuff, before I buy new...it's been months, and I'm still working it -- except for those 2 afghan projects I started. They needed the same dye lot and all, you see:)

    1. As long as they have intended projects I agree, they don't count!

  3. I also have an overload of yarn! But...I've made a rule for myself that I can't buy any more until I use up what I have. We'll see how that goes. :-)

    1. I haven't bough yarn since March...and yet I feel like I have more yarn... consolidating it into one place was part of the problem. I think by stashing it around the house I can pretend there isn't as much.

  4. Not quite that much yarn... I think. I can't be sure, since different parts of the stash are living quite far away from each other. I still have a good several hundred dollars' worth, though, so I'm also starting to think that maybe I should go on a yarn diet.

  6. Whenever I feel guilty about my stash, I visit a.d.d. Knitter on Ravelry and look at hers.
