Flash Your Stash Friday

Okay, just a quickie today since Tami, of Work in Progress Wednesday fame has decided to host a Flash Your Stash Friday.  How could I possibly pass that up?  I could not.  So I'm neglecting every single thing I should be doing at the moment and photographing my yarn.  That's sane, right?

Anyhow, Flash Your Stash is an annual thread on Ravelry, and this was my first year participating (coincidentally, also the first year I had any stash to flash).  Here's what my stash looked like on April 1:

Hmmph.  Flickr isn't cooperating with me sharing that photo, so you'll have to live with its teensy-ness for the moment.  I'll see if I can get it fixed this weekend.  Sorry!  And now, here's my stash as of today:

I thought it was so much bigger now, but really it's just pretty different, and better quality yarn.  From the April stash, the aqua blue became a cardigan, the periwinkle blue was gifted to my neighbor, the variegated wine-colored stuff on the top right became a short sleeve cardigan and the silvery green stuff found a new home at a garage sale.  Not a bad turnaround for 4 months!

Back to the family stuff on Sunday... I'm doing more digging this weekend.


  1. i remember once upon a time when that was about the size of my one would have ever guessed that i was about to become incredibly addicted to the stuff! :)

  2. Oh wow. I hope to crochet/knit up so much of my yarn that it becomes more in control like yours! Right now I have a bunch of random stuff I bought when I first learned to knit and crochet!

  3. I agree with Alea, I hope I keep my stash to an organized control where I know where it all goes and what will become of it! I have a tendency to randomly buy yarn that I think is pretty, even if I don't have a reason to. LOL
