How did this happen? First I joined a group and we were going to knit and crochet for the homeless and other charities. So of course a bunch of yarn was donated and I picked out a couple or few skeins to take home.
Then I went to Joanne’s and picked out a couple or few more skeins. Um, they were having a sale.
Then I went to Hancock Fabrics, they were having a sale too……., and picked out a couple or few more skeins.
Then I went to Walmart and saw they had a couple or three of fun colors for reasonable and picked out a couple or few more skeins.
Then I went to the thrift store and somebody had donated a bunch of yarn, still with the wrappers on them, never touched, pretty colors so I picked out a couple or few skeins.
Yikes, now I have a “stash” and the terrible itch to “pick out a couple or few more skeins”! And I haven’t even been in a real yarn shop yet, help!
The worse part is I am still a beginning knitter. I haven’t learned to crochet yet at all. All I have progressed to is making ten inch squares for blankets. That is like a skein a month is all I need…..
Sigh. I’ll never use the stash up. Hey, isn’t that the point of a yarn stash?
