What’s in your fiber stash?

I knew that I had a lot of yarns and fibers, but I didn’t realize just how much until I looked at it with “new” eyes yesterday. This year has been spent mostly working out of my various totes of yarns, but I still have a long way to go. My creativity will hopefully add a myriad of new and unique items to my online studio. I’m very much looking forward to working outside of my comfort zones with all of this yarn. Also the plan has my totes looking askance at me with hungry glances.

The small totes

The biggest challenge is to decide just what I want to make with my assortment of yarns. I have wool, bamboo wool, cotton, cotton blends, and acrylics in all shapes and colors. I feel that there may be quite a few learning experiences to come on this trip and hopefully some successes in the mix. I suppose I could view it as bonding with my fibers.

Mind you, this is the first corner of yarns. I have a few of the XXL Ziplock bags with Red Heart Super Saver lap robe leftovers, a bag or two of odd ball yarns that have been given to me, and baskets of bulky wool for woven rugs. Yarn shopping should perhaps take a back seat to creation for a while, but at least I know I have something to work on at all times. Maybe this is why I always seem to have so many projects going at one time. What do you think? Oh, and what’s in your stash?


  1. Funny you should blog about this today because the preliminary stages if my spring cleaning has officially begun and today I was going through my skeins – some of which I forgot I had – and I really want to reorganize my largesse!! Yay fibers!! Bamboo wool sounds intriguing!!

  2. I’m so glad to know that I’m not alone here. The clear totes were my one brainstorm after years of having to open boxes and bags to find out what I have. I suppose in a perfect scenario I would have just enough for 3 or 4 projects, but I fear that would be like have only 3 or 4 books. LOL
