Let's begin with your NEW YEAR stash!


Hey everybody! After holiday is over and new year end, I broght a alot stuff to show youguys. Youguys know already. I KNOW! More yarn..Don't ask me why! It has been crezy last year and this year will be more knitting not buying more yarn. It is so hard to say to myself also so hard to buy more yarn. As other knitter say this situsation called our self "YARN COLLECTOR."

Been like every year stash is growing by the big plastic ben. I really need to stop buying more yarn. I have a 15 sweaters worth of yarn in my ben, 30 worth of scarf and 70 pairs of socks yarn to knit from. Youguys thinking Iam crazy but this is real! Also buying yarn is OK! But where the all yarn goes? I really need more space to store all yarn. Youguys feel what I feel. I will talk about this more later.

This years my resolution will be stop buying more yarn and knit with already have in my stash. If there is time to buy more yarn, I will find project first then buy the yarn. I hope keep my resolution this year hopefuly less yarn in my clothet.

Moving right along..So youguys what to know what I got for my holiday and new year shopping? I bought a lot of socks yarn.
