My current stash of yarn fits in one bin. In fact, the bin is only about half full.
This one bin is a far cry from a few years ago when I had three bins of yarn and I needed to sit on the lids in order for them to close.
I have been working quite diligently to whittle down my stash....trying to make things with what I have. My hobby, after all, is to crochet, not to simply collect yarn.
Now don’t get me wrong, a stash can be very handy – some place to turn when you need a small amount of a certain color to finish up a project, or an odd ball to use for making a small gift – but three bins stuffed to the gills seemed like a lot to me.
And between you and me, I am determined to make the most of my stash so that when I go to the local yarn sale this summer I can indulge in a few (maybe more) guilt-free yarn purchases.
Working from my stash and planning to add to it...that is where I am at.
What about you? How big is your yarn stash? Is it shrinking or ever- expanding?
Hi Crafty Cucumber! I have 3 large bins filled up too and I'm trying to use up yarn from stash also. I just finished knitting a men's scarf and I'm crocheting vibrant colored dishcloths. Have fun using up you yarn.ReplyDelete

Thanks Julie. It is fun to think of projects to do using yarn I have...and over time I have used up a lot of yarn. Thanks for stopping by.Delete
