I must be going blind! Well my eyesight isn’t as good as it was and I do struggle a bit at times but today I opened the draft of this post and there it was – an option to edit in the Classic Editor. So Yay! So happy. Just like before.
I am finding that the organza bags provided by Wool Warehouse are becoming very useful for organising my stash.
I never used to think that I really had a stash. I had a drawer of Stylecraft Special DK yarn – though actually this drawer has much less in it now plus some oddments.
I had another drawer of sock wool and a few oddments like flesh colour DK yarn and some leftovers– though this drawer is probably a bit more choc-a-bloc now.
Then later I used a large plastic box for the yarn left over from knitted jumpers and similar and a bit of yarn passed on to me by friends.
But now I have a bag of yarn for my succulents. Having had to buy a huge variety of different yarn to make the different ones. (And I didn’t buy every sort of yarn mentioned in the book, only that for my favourites and used my existing Stylecraft yarn where acrylic was needed.)
And I have a bag of baby yarn left over from my two rainbow baby coats. and

Now, if I was still able to see my friends at Crafty Coffee, I would probably have the option to give it away. As it is I plan to make use of it in some way one day. Not sure if to do this for a Charity Shop or other charity as I don’t know anyone having a baby.
I’ve had to buy yarn for the CAL towards the end of this month and I have a little bag of yarn I already had for the two Zoom workshops this coming weekend.
And of course I have the huge amount of yarn for the blanket I am planning to crochet for my granddaughter. I didn’t buy it all in one go so it’s more than enough for one bag.
Contrary to my normal habit of planning a blanket, so I buy just enough to make it and have very little over, this time I will only need about two thirds of this.
All this has made me think that a year from now I should be thinking “stash busting” projects only. This may not be totally restrictive as I should have quite a variety and quantity of different acrylic yarns.
All this without mentioning my crochet cotton.
Seen here when it was tidy and comprehensive.
I have both more and less since then but it does all fit in the drawer.
