I have now stashed 106 yarns on Ravelry and I am so excited! This is a revelation to me - why have I not used this feature before?! As I am adding them to Rav, I am storing them in plastic crates - with labels on them that match where I have 'stored' them in Rav. Genius! Way better than boxes labelled 'wool' and goodness knows what is in them. Now I can look at a photo of the yarn to decide which one I want to use, how much I have, where it is - oh me, oh my, I could rave about this for days!
I know everyone else is nodding, saying 'umm, where have you been all this time? Living under a rock?' so I will stop gushing now. But it it super amazingly useful, wouldn't you agree?
So come and check out my stash! Oh, hang on, or is that just me? Am I being a kind of creepy yarn voyeur by looking at what other people have in their stashes?!
Must be that I am not a lady then!
It is a bit scary though as I now cannot convince hubby that there isn't really THAT much yarn. Now it is starting to be collected into one spot, I can see that actually, yes, there is
a ton of yarn there.
I wonder who has the biggest stash on Ravelry?!
On another note, I have a friend who wants to yarn bomb her whole house - pretty sure I can set her up for yarn there!
All I did was send her this cartoon and she is running with it! Not sure yet exactly what form it will take, but I will definitely post some photos.
I have started the Colin Vest. Super easy, no thinking knitting. Great for my Audrey Hepburn movie marathon I have going on! Tonight will be Funny Face.
I love the effect so far; and the yarn is divine! So soft and cuddly. I want to rub it on my cheek all the time as I knit (or is that another weird thing that no one else does?!)
I am hoping I will have enough to complete it as I have been on the internet trying to source some more with no luck. It came in a monthly sock yarn subscription and often the yarns are dyed just for that.
I haven't actually started any of these books as I just returned home from the library. But I am definitely sensing a theme in my reading here!
I just love those books about other books - boy, that makes no sense, but do you know what I mean?!
For example, The Little Women Letters is about Lulu who finds Grandma Jo's old letters up in the attic and dark family secrets emerge. I'm fascinated to hear what the author thinks Jo March's dark family secrets are!
The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen - title pretty much explains it. Same sort of thing; Jane's memoirs are found in an old attic chest, revealing the untold story of a love affair.
Ruth's Journey tells the story of Mammy from Gone With The Wind.
I am looking forward to each of these, and to see some lovely knitting and find some more titles to place on my reading list.
