You remember how I felt so good, when I was working on Granny Blues, about stashbusting and reducing the maaassive piles of yarn hidden in various corners of the house? Yes. Well. Ahem.
Yesterday I finished the Sunflowers blanket. Yay! No pictures yet, I’m waiting for the pattern testers to finish it up, and then pics and pattern will be posted as one. But having finished it, it was time for some ‘yarn housekeeping’. I overstocked myself for the Sunflowers blanket (I was using a yarn with distinct dye lots, so better overstocked than understocked), and I needed to sort out the whole balls and the part balls and get them all stored away. And in the process of doing that, I decided to drag everything out, make a mental note of it all, and try to think of some stashbusting projects to do with some of it.
So I got it all out, and piled it all up, and looked at it all.
I should be clear that the blue bucket at the bottom of the picture? Is overflowing with yarn.
It is possible – just possible, mind you – that I have a slight yarn problem. ‘No such thing as too much yarn’ is a lovely motto, and results in joyous yarn parcels arriving, but I think I need to do some more destashing!! I have a few smaller projects in mind, and I need a short break from designing, after the hard work of the Sunflowers blanket, so I will dutifully endeavour to work through some of this yarn.
And no more will arrive until some of this is gone. I absolutely promise.
