The other day I saw a fishing poster that said "keep calm and cast on" and I thought it would apply beautifully to knitting as well. Don't you think so?
Anyway, speaking of knitting, here's a picture of my personal yarn collection:
It takes up an entire shelf of my bedroom bookshelf, and I honestly have no idea how it got so large.
I always hear other people talking about their yarn "stash" and I've always wondered why someone would even want to have yarn stashed away. Every time it came up, I would think isn't the whole point of yarn to knit with it and not to just have it lying around?
But now, suddenly, I get it. A sizable yarn stash isn't something you work to achieve, it's an unavoidable hazard of being a knitter.
All of my yarn is left over from the projects for which I bought one too many skeins or from the projects that never came to be because I got sidetracked by somethings else. I never just bought yarn for the fun of buying it, and yet, another yarn stash has been born.
As far as hazards go, I suppose a wool-stuffed bookshelf isn't such a bad one.
Do you have a yarn stash too?
