For Secret Pal 11, contest number 3 is to Flash Your Stash so here it is:


My stash is all kept in this rack. It was in the shed when we bought the house so I cleaned it up and it became my Yarn Rack. Recently I destashed my stash (there is a big garbage bag sitting in my craft room over flowing with yarn) and I'm giving away the yarn I no longer have a use for to a seniors home. Since I packed this bag up probably over 3 weeks ago I figure it is now no longer part of my stash, I just haven't gotten it out of the house yet.

When I destashed, I put all of the yarn I was keeping into the rack in colors.



Browns & Oranges


And last but not least, Greys

Before the color system my yarn was categorized by type of yarn and weight of yarn. I like this system better, especially for using left over yarns with other left overs into projects you would never have thought of until you saw the yarns together.

Like this scarf I made yesterday. It's a combo of some fur yarn and ladder yarn worked horizontally.

That's a yarn stash??? Come on, be honest, show us the real thing... or maybe your production explains your stash size: yarn does not have time to accumulate in your house!

13 days before the spinning retreat!

Hey I have scarves in each of those yarns.... both gifts from you! Whoever ends up with that scarf will be connected to me in the yarn heavens.

You are quite organized! You don't even want to know what a mess mine is in!

I could spot the sock yarn I sent - yay!
