Stash Overload

I may have hinted at trying to cut back on stash enhancement. With good reason. I'll tell you in a moment.

Felt I had to join a stashalong (I'll provide a link later). You know, for moral support.

Because I am weak.

Because it May be wrong to have a stash so large, that if converted into money and food, it would support a small(ish) country for a good while.

The stashalong asks you to pick a goal. There are three categories to choose from. I couldn't decide so I thought it would be a good idea to start with an inventory. Yeah... Ok.... I'm not completely done yet. However, I am overwhelmed. Really.

Having separated most of the acrylic stuff that I've been turning my nose up at lately (do not ask me how so much of it made it into my home.... besides the words SALE SALE SALE screaming at me upon entering a store), and swiftly condemning it to garbage bags destined for FRC, there was SOOOO Much still left over to count. My inventory progressed by writing down the amount and type of yarn. So far, three pages full. For the sake a brevity, I added everything together: balls, hanks, skeins, cones large and small....

Are you ready??

Are you sitting down? (I highly recommend it!)

Well then. That's not that much, is it? Do you really think I should be condemned to just working from my stash for an indefinite period of time? I mean, a good portion of that is only 50g balls, even though others may be about 400g or more.

Now to distract you all from the above revelations, a FO.

That is a huge stash. Thats not even a stash..too much for a mere 'stash'. its more like the pile of money Scrooge McDuck dives into in his vault, except its yarn. Oh..My..Gods.
Also, the scarf is gorgeous.
I insist on a full accounting of said stash incase I need something! ;oD

your stash sounds heavenly. The only time it's a problem is when it bothers you, then you should do something. Otherwise, enjoy.

I love your Irish hiking scarf. The colours are gorgeous!
