My significant other instructed me to do something with the pile of yarn in the guest room. I thought it was an overreaction, because there were only a few skeins in there…
How in the world did I get an entire Rubbermaid tub (the big one) filled with yarn? I’ve only been knitting for a few months, and I thought I only bought yarn when I knew what I was going to use it for. Technically that’s true, but I now have enough yarn to knit 10-12 pairs of socks. Since each pair takes me about 12 or so hours to knit, I’ll have projects well into the future. I also have enough yarn for 3 hats. Then there is the yarn I bought because it’s pretty and the el-cheapo yarn I use to try out new things with (which shouldn’t count because it gets re-used until it’s too ratty to work with any longer).
I do have some really nice sock yarn in my stash, so it was fun to look at it all while I loaded up the tub. I can’t wait to make some garish socks from some of it. I tend to avoid bright colors, but I decided if I was going to knit them, people were going to notice.
Hopefully my knitting needle collection won’t be discovered. I believe I have them hidden in a safe place.
