flashing my stash.

The deal I made with myself a year ago was that my stash would stay small enough to be contained in these four clear plastic cases:

Well, lets just say I kept that deal for a year.

Yes, my stash is growing. Good thing for Flash Your Stash day!

My parents recently went on a cruise around South America, and got me yarn and wool! yay! Unfortunately, I haven't had time to take it out of the bag to show it. But here is a little peek at a bag full of yarn and super soft wool. yum!

Nice to see that The Container Store has my clear stash cases on sale.

Speaking of sales and stash, tomorrow Stitch DC have their spring sale: 20% off all yarn from noon to 2pm. Get there early and try to get out early. Otherwise you'll be stuck there for hours in line. Did you know they have a new location in chevy chase? Great.

And now we have just 5 more weeks till sheep & wool! And now that I've sorted through my stash I might not have to go. yeah. right.

:: meet my stash.

even your stash is beautiful.

My friend Michael delVecchio swears I should sometime go to the sheep&wool show. I'll be in NYC this year, but maybe next year.

Maybe I should learn how to knit.

What a beautiful and well orgainzed stash. But I tell you, what steals the show is your artwork! Polly and Casey are great. Etsy seems to be down right now, I've bookmarked you so I can come back and take a look.

You sure have packed in a lot of delicious yarn into those four containers! I bet you could smoosh more in there too!

Very nice! Like you said, the containers you like to use are on sale so...you could pick up one more - you know, just in case... ;o)

I am so jealous of your collection. Greg won't let me keep all of that because our place is much smaller, so I have to have a yarn life vicariously through you. Although, I was wondering, did you start off as a beginner on acrylic yarns ever?
