Yarn-aholics Therapy-discussion now closed. See Share a Yarn!

Sometimes it is good to air your problems.

 

My name is Jennifer and I am a yarnaholic.

 

Thankfully my stash doesn't look all that scary in this picture. Okay not quite all of it is here and some of is is hiding behind others but it doesn't seem too bad does it? I'm sure there are many more of you with bigger bundles lurking in your homes.

To the left is 2 baby blankets for family babies, a big pile of squares I'm working on for KAS and my March hats which I haven't posted yet. To the right is a bundle of pieces for a friends wedding present blanket which is cream and light blues. The very front has a bundle of beautiful cotton/silk mix that I bought a year ago to make a throw-over for myself but haven't gotton round to it yet. Front right is one of my hat looms with a hat started on it. 2 of my other sized looms also have the beginnings of hats. I wanted them all to be started for a talk I am doing at the end of the month so that everyone there can have a go at hats, knitting or crochet. No one will escape having at least a little go.

 

Well I have shown you mine, now you show me yours (if you think you're brave enough)

O no it sounds good too me. 1.  yarn doesn't talk back, 2. Yarn doesn't eat, and or sleep.  Sounds good too me, but then how would a person buy it unless I worked.......

 

Sounds good to me.....way too many tools......never enough yarn!!!!

Not really Pam, I'm always either tripping over tools he's left laying around or hunting high and low because he never organizes them and keeps them in one place. I'm sure he wouldn't miss half of them!

In that case Jeanne, go for it!  

Really?

Oh absolutely!  I don't need one more inch of padding on my hips or tummy!

An interesting concept - yarn bowls made in Canada:

Just wonder how much they get for these, wish I would have thought of this...

 

Karen, I have been looking at these online and most are selling at around $40.00 for small bowls and $50.00 and up for larger size.

Beats watching the yarn ball bounce all over the floor collecting dust bunnies or diving under chairs and sofas!  Clever idea.

I want to say that I found and dusted off a UFO (unfinished object) from among my stash. It was to be a Cuddle I think, with a strand of sport and a strand of worsted worked together but I blew air through it and feel it's not insulating enough, doesn't stop the air well at all.  I'd done it in double crochet, only about 6-8 rows. So I frogged (undid) it and have restarted it in half double crochet and I think it's much warmer this way.  The sport weight(like DK) is a lemon yellow I've had no use for for ages, a huge ball.  And the worsted is a varied pastel yarn of light and dark blues, lavender and yellow, so they go well together. I think I'll run out of the worsted before I'm finished the Cuddle so must plan for another to jump in and take it's place, but for now I'm very satisfied to have restarted this Cuddle and feel now I'm doing it right. :)  And as these were both big balls of yarn, like 1 pound or more, that reduces my stash some. :) Of course I'm doing it in the 30 inch circumference for the larger babies, as Ronda requested.

Sounds nice, glad you found it, and can rid your stast out a little more.  I just gave a pretty color of several skiens to my daughter.  She loved it.
