The FLASH!!!

Flashin' the Stash!!!! Today is the day of many knitters have decided to "FLASH their stashes". I'm doing it because I need a reality check!!! It is time for me to clean the drawers, closets, and baskets, find missing yarns, make priorities on what to make and weed out of yarns.

Mom and Jerri Lyn , please do not drop your jaw and scream "Susan!!!". I'm coming out of the Hall of Shame. My dear DH is very much aware of my deepest dark secret and keep telling me "Why????". I always give him many good reasons!!! Wink!!! There's so much promise, yet so little time to actually do anything.

So brace yourself and enjoy looking at my stash!!!

Remember this picture of my sock yarns I showed you two days ago, I decided to sort them out on my bed.... so there they are!!!!
I counted the sock yarns to make 45 pairs!!!! Sighs!!! I admit that I'm really out of control!!!

Stroll down to the yarnland.......

Not pretty sight!!! My DH is not too happy to see them on the floor in my craft room!!!
These yarns are found in the closet.
Another stash are found in other closet.
More yarns are in the drawers.
Karabella Aurora 8 (10 of them) I got from my dear colleague for X-mas. I have not decided what pattern should I make with.
Designated for a project but not yet started!!!

Susan, I just came by to ask you a question about sock knitting and now I know why... I must have been guided by a higher power... It is time for a yarn intervention Susan. You know we all care about and want you to be, which is why we want you to get help....
ha ha.
You may be able to knit enough socks from sock yarnto keep the feet of an entire third world nation!

I have alway wanted to knit socks but I had never found a way that is comfortable enough to try - Now I have found these little short double pointed needles of wood that seem to really help - I was usuing old metal ones before. I do know and have tried the magic loop and the two circular needles but they never really grabbed me. So, what do you use?

your old secret pal,

Well, I don't feel quite so bad about all my Stash. I figure there's enough in my closet that my Granddaughters can hassel over it after I'm gone. Unless of course, I last a l-o-n-g- time.
