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)

Would it be possible to back the afghan with some fabric, such as flannelette or fleece? Obviously this would add to postage charges which is always a consideration.
Now that's good idea !
I think flannelette backing would add weight but fleece is fairly light just very bulky. I think backing a gappy afghan is a superb idea. I could easily do that. I'll keep an eye out for such bargains Christine!
I like this alot it took someone alot of time to do this.
It did and they really must be a yarnophile themselves.
Oh might I add I just bought 3 balls of glittery soft yarn for $1 each, regularly $4. Score! Yes, it's washable.
Good for you on your great find. I love those kinds of finds. I gave my daughter along with a lot of yarn I had a stash of Lion Brand deep purple suede, that I got for $1 each, and I bought all they had left I think. I didin't like knititng with it, and she crochets and said that she likes working with it. She is selling her scarves in my sister inlaws sisters shop she owns down town. We had snow here which lasted justed a few hours last week. We usally have snow by now, but glad we are staying away from it. It was really cold out today in the low 30's after 60 it feels 0....We went to the indoor range today and practiced shooting, and I did better then my husband I was so happy, I finally did it better. it was fun once I learned to turn off all the others that were there shooting. I kept jumping when we first got there, even withh ears protectors it was loud. Can't wait to go again....
Hope to hear from you soon. love/hugs
We've had fresh snow here so it's bright in the sun. It's been overcast so much I'm loving the sunshine however long it lasts. It's warmed up to -10 here, nice! Isn't that curious how one can find a yarn that works lousy for knitting but great for crochet and vice versa? I've tried yarns that knitters rave about and they about drive me bonkers in crochet. I think some yarns naturally lean towards one skill or the other. Shooting eh? We live in hunting and fishing territory so lots of hunters here. I'm not a hunter though if I lived out of town I'd for sure get trained and own a shotgun and a rifle...for protection from bears and wolves. I am guessing you do just target shooting with handguns? There's an enthusiastic Gun Club here. Love, Jeanne
Yes, I just target shoot and love it.... We had a little snow but it is gone and 59 today. Suppose to be like this all week during the day, but cold at night. I hate this kind of weather you are always getting sick. Fla. here I come! (I hoping anyhow). I'm going to send you a reg.
e-mail, need to tell you something.
Hold on---she's knitting with ROPE???? No wonder everything is so big and fluffy! I could use her knitting needles for fence posts, lol. (Unless that's a picture of Thumbelina.)
