I think I have a problem!!

I was asked to do a stash picture for the parenting forum I’m a member of. So today whilst The Husband looked after the boys I got all my yarn out and took pictures & omg. I don’t think I need to buy more for awhile!!

This is my “downstairs” stash. Which lives in a bag next to the sofa for easy access!!

As you can see I seem to favour Sirdar, Rowan and Sublime at the moment. With an array of Rico Baby DK (which I love!) There’s a box of Adriafil Duo Plus, that I picked up for £9 last year sometime with visions of making myself an Attic24 style bag from that never happened!

Then there’s the yarn that lives upstairs that I dig into when I need acrylics or just yarn for practising something on…

As you can see, there’s a mish-mash of stuff in there. There’s the Red Heart that my mum & dad brought back from the states for me last month. Debbie Bliss Cotton DK that I forgot I had! And on the right that green yarn & the 1 ball of cream with a label on saying “service” I inherited it from one of my mums friends, and it still has the receipt tucked into the label in “old money”! It feels so soft, but says its 100% acrylic. There’s also some Patons, and Sirdar in there that I inherited too.
I definitely don’t need to purchase more for awhile.

Although I did discover that one of the Sublime Soya Cotton DKs that I picked up is a different colour to the others.. Doh. That’ll teach me to pick up yarn on different trips to the shop without checking dye numbers first for reference. So I’m allowing myself to buy 3 more balls of that particular yarn. 2 to match the one random ball and 1 to match the 2 that I already had! I want to make an African Flowers blanket I think.

Oh and a finished picture. Well kind of, its a side view, as I haven’t posted it to the person I made it for yet. But its a big thick wide scarf, and I love it! <3

Thats me done for now. Glad I finally managed to do a kind of proper update!
