Flashing my stash

My stash cupboard has been in a mess for a while now, you know you pull out a bag, shove it back. Everything is a jumble, open bags, no bags, loose yarn unravelling. I have bags of yarn all over the place. As I have a whole Friday to myself today I decided one of my first jobs was to sort my stash.

There is another good reason for tidying up. I got an email from Wool Warehouse last night with an amazing offer, one too good to leave, Drops Love You 5 100% recycled cotton -50gram balls for 80p each!!!!!!!!!!! I have to admit to buying 32 balls, well its free postage if you spend £25, and I don't feel guilty as 10 minutes after I bought it I received a cheque for £60, 2nd prize in the village monthly draw, bonus.

So this is what my stash looks like when all pulled out on a king sized bed


I have been very ruthless and had a good sort out, bagged everything up neatly.  There is a large bag to give to Sandra for the Shoebox Appeal


Now my stash is neat there doesn't look anywhere near as much yarn ......wink wink

Double Knit
Double Knit odds and ends
Sock, 4ply and thinner
Chunky
Aran/Worstead

 and here it is all neatly put away.  Not sure where the new yarn is going though...... may need to clear the bottom which contains all my stuffing, yarn rings, drop spindle, mini loom etc etc
