I have been officially knitting now for 11 months. Within the last 11 months I have accumulated the following yarn stockpile.
I have been told that this large amount of yarn is not unusual for knitters to own. I am trying not to buy more yarn and to just use what is in my stash but it gets difficult. I will see a great deal online or in stores and I get heart palpitations at the thought of it.
What knitter hasn’t gone into a yarn store and just spent hours squishing the yarn in their hands? On my last roadtrip with my fellow “knitwits” I did not purchase any yarn. I am determined to begin using my stockpile. I am currently making this pattern using a very lovely heathered lavender baby alpaca brush yarn.
I will share it once it is finished. I have about 1.5 feet of it completed and will need to get at least 5 feet before I bind off. It is a very simple pattern really. I want to make a rug for my kitchen now that Mike has gotten the new tile completed in there. I bought that yarn last September but did not rush to knit the rug because I knew it would take months to get the tile done since Mike works so many hours.
So tell me that I am not the only one to have this much yarn in their stockpile. Show me your stockpiles. I dare you. Just please don’t judge me. LOL
