This Lent I have given up buying yarn. After assembling and dissembling this pile of yarn I might want to extend that to way after Easter!
's March Challenge which is to photograph yarn stashes. Mine has GROWN quite a bit since I started knitting and crocheting. Partially to do with when I started, I did not know how much yarn is needed on certain projects and I would buy what was left of whatever type and color was left in clearance sections. Not to mention that the millend bin at AC Moore now has the expensive yarn for dirt cheap (found some that lists for $25 a ball and only paid $6.99 or less for it) My grandmother, also gave me her box of yarn (the bright 1970's yarn in the top left corner of the picture). This is the majority of my stash. I decided to not get what's in the rubbermaid tubs out since I was not able to get all my yarn out on the bed. Even with them in the tubs, you can get the idea how large this is. Not pictured are the balls of yarn that are in use with various needles and hooks and one loom.
I tried to place the skeins so you can kinda tell what brands are in this picture (except for what's in the rubbermaid tubs.
