Flash Your Stash (like a drunk sorority girl)
FLASH YOUR STASH CHALLENGE: OK, I just made that up - but post pictures of your stash and a description of your stash and it's life expectancy - post a comment here and I'll draw a random name - winner gets - you got it - something from my stash.
My stash exceeds my life expectancy. Here are 3 pics of my stash closet. The floor is covered. Somewhere is one of those Costco clear tubs filled with crapy acrylic junk - we just won't go there. I can't find anyone I dislike enough to send it to. The big white blob with a black poofy thing on top is actually a lovely mesh bag containing the pattern (white blob) and yarn for the Knit PIcks' Tree of Life Afgan. You can see the yellow sheet of paper for my son's v-neck top down sweater and my size 25 knitting needles - A Stitches West find - and seveal knitting bags with projects inside. Can you see the basket - it's filled with "used" skeins of yarn from FOs - but I can't just discard the un-used yarn. You never know -sheep and alpaca my unionize and protest the shearing of fiber animals.. then where would I be?? I've taken a picture of part of the shelving. The bottom contains some baskets and what not of needle cases and supplies - the top shelve is actually somewhat organized. I have a tub (not pictured) of all my sock yarn, what you see is some of my handspun and lace weight skeins - Not pretty is it? I may need an intervention.
So FLASH YOUR STASH - post a comment and I'll draw names on July 17th - Thursday. To be "eligible" you must post pictures on your blog and leave a comment on my blog so I know you have "entered" - I'll post the winner and contact to get a mailing address for shipping of yarn from my stash.
