This weekend I volunteered to help Renee of Miss Celie’s Pants with her first ever Baltimore Destash event. Over 50 people brought fabric and some yarn to a venue to trade and then donate the rest to charity. It was great and filled with such positivity and light. I was responsible for sorting and managing the donated yarn and surprisingly, I didn’t take a single thing home. Why?
Because my stash overflows.
I’ve got a lot of yarn and I’ve been doing well at knitting a lot from my stash this year. So far out of the 29 finished objects I’ve completed this year, 4 were made with yarn bought in 2018. The rest has come from my stash. But I’ve also bought yarn this year too…I know my stash is never ending. So it left me curious today…what does your stash look like?
Do you only buy for the project you have in mind? Do you have 1 bin or do you have more yarn that you’ll ever knit in your lifetime? Spill the beans!
