The Stash

I recently joined a knitting and crocheting online community called Ravelry. It has great patterns, forums, and groups, but the part is am loving is the "My Notebook" section...and more specifically "My Stash". Yes...I have listed that which is feeding my current guilty pleasure. I get a goofy little thrill in uploading pictures of my latest score. It was not too long ago I only had a couple of skeins of yarn. It all fit in a small shopping bag. Unfortunately, I have discovered the joys of reading the Ravelry forums on yarns and then I need to buy me some of that of which they speak. I am focusing on yarn I can knit into hats because I really only have two knitting skill sets...hats and scarves. The yarns are so rich in color and feel so soft. I need to have a talk with myself to stop buying until I use some of this "stash" up. Must not buy yarn...Must not buy yarn...

Yes but as an artist just having beautiful supplies to look at is so much more addicting than making stuff out of it! I know I can't stop buying yarn, even if I don't know what I'd even make with it!
