Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

I love my stash.
I probably love your stash too.
Yarn and fiber stashes are just beautiful.
The other day I decided to play with my sock yarn stash. Every now and then the yarn needs some love, some touch just to remind it that it's still loved. No one wants to have yarn with a complex. Sad yarn tangles, everyone knows that.
The sock yarn had outgrown it's small zippered case. So I got a much larger case. But what would I do with the old case? Why, fill it with yarn of course. Both containers are nicely filled with sock yarn. The small case got all my solid sock yarns and the big case got all the variegated or multi colored sock yarns.
And I've run out of space. Seriously. I would not say there is no more room for sock yarn but I will say I'll need to buy another case if I get much more. Although at the moment I don't feel the need to buy more. My sock yarn has happily been fondly and feels loved. Much more and I'm not sure it would get the attention and love it needs.
I'm not just teasing with a story here. I actually documented my play date with my yarn, HERE. But there were a few that escaped the hold and I've got to try and find some room for it. Here is that bunch:
At some point when I'll add them to the sock stash page. I think there are even a few balls that missed all the photos. I know this stash isn't as impressive as many but I love my sock stash. Happy pretty sock stash.
Speaking of socks I've finished one of the husbeast socks:
Thank you all for your well wishes from Friday's post. I may be a little erratic in my posting for a while. Like another 7 weeks or so. I'm going to add husbeast onto this account so that he can post any news that may "pop out".
