Ravelry & Yarn Stash

I received an invite from Ravelry and set myself up as ReneeR. Great!

Now it's time to log my needles and stash. This should take a long time - so call me Sisyphus today. Logging and itemizing is not the tough part... it's getting across the room to touch the yarn and record it! My family seems to think my sewing/quilting/knitting room is not My Room, but the only drop zone in the house for homeless items destined for charity donation. I can't list the things, that have Nothing-To-Do-With-My-Hobby, sitting on the floor instead of the trunk of my husband's, my teenager's, my car, ready to go to a new home. That list would take more time than my stash's.

Yesterday, a group of us discussed our inventories:
  1. Who had the largest stash.
    I nominate this woman.

    I wish she would adopt me!!!
    See more at Word's Biggest Stash.
  2. How to hide yarn from your husband.
    One woman was caught hiding hers in a rental unit. (He probably found the bill and investigated.)
  3. What hubby thought about so much yarn.
    (I'm safe as you can see by pics of my husband's hobbies.)

  4. dobro
  5. And...what constituted "too much."
  6. (by UFO?)
And here's my honey playing his new toy, the dobro he made. Turn the volume on and listen to the Texas Moonbeam Waltz. YeHa!
