Does anyone have one?  Some confessions here on loveknitting.

I'll try that again!

I knew that you would be the first one in the confessional!  I don't really have one anymore but back in the 70s and 80s I used to work part-time in in my local wool shop and would buy it by the kilo…

I'll try that again!

No, not really Jean but thank you.  I am still trying to sort out my home to set up the sewing/knitting machines, once I have the small room back in shape.  The new (to me) desk was delivered the other day and now I have to find all the things I removed from the room and hid away elsewhere and put it back; or send it to the recycling...

I am not yet at the heel on the sock I started in Argyll, the yarn is not to my liking at all and any excuse to put it down suits me fine. yell

I'll try that again!

You know you are old enough to allow yourself to throw it in the "someday" bin - I have started to say "Life's too short to read a boring book" - you can adapt that for knitting.wave

I love my stash and am keeping it. I have requested I am buried with my wool and fabrics. You never know they might be useful!

Well.

Stash.

I don't think I dare show.

I have one cupboard with enough yarn that is piled higher than my height - and in another there are knitted teddies and more yarn. One ottoman, stuffed full. Now I have bought 4 IKEA see-through boxes to put in some more yarn.

 

Jean, I seriously believe that I qualify for your S E B L E .......

 

Now, what about the fabric stash?

Mine is building nicely..........mind you I did have a very ancient collection of yarn from my previous interest in crochet but now temptation is beckoning via the internet......I already have a pile of lovely yarns awaiting projects.

Yup fabrics too. And patterns and craft books and cross stitch kits and a half made rug. Guess S E B L E applies to me too!

My stash is not as large as it used to be, only 1 bag of yarn and some cross stitch and some patchwork. I only have one small storage cupboard for the whole apartment so my crafts have to share. But it may build again when I move back to Somerset.

30 years ago I did a lot of dressmaking for people, I saved all the fabric scraps thinking 'one day I'll put all these together and make a patchwork quilt.' Hmm, maybe one day, also still have oddments of mohair from a striped jumper I made for a boyfriend when I was 17. I did dispose of lots of stuff a few years ago when I moved in with mike, but as if by magic it seems to have grown again...

I think things breed, whilst we are not looking, in our cupboards.

I'll try that again!

I'm sure they do breed - certainly books do. Mind you, if you were to get a soil tester on our bookshelves, you would find that they were high fertility! wave
