Busy, busy times with the stash. The upcoming Guild auction reminded me that it is time for the grand spring fluffing of the stash. I do try to give the whole thing a once over about twice a year. After all, stash diving is a skill that must be honed and practiced. It keeps one at the ready for those wonderful LYS mega sales!
I am not accepting comments about the three piles of new magazines & books that are still on my desk. Those don't count. It only counts if I actually try to put the new pattern books into the stash closet. So - what is in the closet is staying organized and that is the end of that.
There is also a goodly amount of Louisa Harding Kashmir DK from the famous daughter dress.
It was almost painful, but I am also sending 800+ yards of Lamb's Pride to the auction. It is gray. The wool, not the auction. Gray is the new black and this would make a lovely cardigan for the fall, but. . . It needs a new home.
Notice that I am a safety stasher. First, all like yarn (color AND dye lot) are sealed in a plastic bag. Then, the bags are locked into plastic storage tubs. In general, I try to have like yarns in the same tub, but it varies with my mood. The tub in the background became all of the Twisted Sisters yarn. Did you notice the pink bag-o-wasabi which needed two plastic bags to contain it all?
Because of my double plastic storage method, I try to toss and fluff the stuff twice yearly. I figure that the yarn needs to breathe real air and I need to be on the lookout for invaders.
So - lots of progress, just not knitting or crocheting. I did stop when I reached this part of the closet.
Maybe after lunch.
Maybe someone (that's a hint, dear reader) will take pity on me and arrive at my door with the energy to tackle the Black Hole.
THAT'S IT. I need a free range Stash Fairy to visit me. Oh, wouldn't that be fantastic?!
