Before I launch into this whole mess, I just wanted to say that the original intent of this post was to busy myself until this awesome seamless fashion knitting book was delivered to me. And it almost worked, except it arrived today and this post is still not created. SO, expect another book review soon, but for now let’s take a look at every knitter/crocheter’s simultaneous pride and shame: the stash.
Other than the fact that it’s starting to resemble the leaning tower of Pisa, it looks harmless enough. I mean there’s a box, my books, my WIP, and the hat box right? So there’s a bunch of yarn sticking out of the hat box? It’s still good, it’s still good.
Let’s take a gander in the shoe box – which is the best stash box in the existence. God Bless u, Jeffrey Campbell.
Here we have new skeins of yarn, leftover skeins, yarn labels, my first ever knitting and crochet instruction book that I bought for $1 in Walmart, and (I barely believe this fits in here) the unfinished work of a blanket I’m going to get rid of shortly to make more room in the box.
Then we have the yarn overflowing from the hat box
And a look inside the hat box, featuring more leftover yarn balls, all my knitting needles, and all my crochet hooks. Also some unseen tapestry needles and ribbon embellishments I will totally use one day. Don’t look at me like that. Don’t judge me.
In a perfect work, I’d love nothing more than to have a cute looking space to neatly organize everything. Maybe some day I will and I can make a new post. In the meantime, I’ll continue to marvel at the fact that a year and a half ago I had like 2 knitting needle sets, 0 crochet hooks, and 2 balls of yarn.
And before I get totally sentimental with that – what’s your stash look like? I’d love to see a comment here, or a post sharing it. Anyone? Bueller?
