Stash Flash

Well, I think it's time to start including some serious knittage in this blog again. Although really I've only been knitting a couple of years, I don't know how 'serious' any of my projects have actually been.

Don't worry, even after That Special Yarn arrives, I'll still be posting LegoPorn. I'm just like that.

I'm still in the process of cataloguing my stash. My friend Ann somehow got me to start keeping track of my yarn. Of course I haven't subtracted the ball I used to make a dishcloth this week

and I have no idea if I added or subtracted the blue that I'm using for the Blanket of Buggery and ohfuck I didn't take the orange off the list but it's still in the bag I carry everywhere, so it's sort of stash, isn't it? Isn't it? Huh? And if I put it back right now do I have to deduct the five yards or so I used to make this

I-cord that was my first attempt at using dpns and which I'm going to use on this bag from Knitter's summer issue?

Obviously I'm hopeless at record-keeping, which are disturbing words from someone with an extensive background in database management. Well no, not all that extensive but it sounds more impressive than "someone who owns six file cards and a plastic box", no?

Great. Ann's so OCD that she catalogues the tiny bits of yarn she cuts off when the ends are too long to weave in, and I'm so laissez-faire that I can't remember to deduct from my spreadsheet even when I ram like five balls of yarn in my tote bag.

I'm thinking if there was a way to combine the two of us, you'd be able to get a couple of normal people out of the mix.

Anyhow, something I have NOT added to the stash spreadsheet is this little stack of Kroy

which will be winging its merry way to Ann in the next couple of days, seeing I finally have time to go to the post office. Deal and a half from Michaels, at about 60% off. Gotta like that action. But I'm still not knitting any damned socks.

Stay tuned for more exciting glimpses into my stash!

For a rebuttal to this sleep-deprived ranter's defamation of my character (I am a character, I have NO character?) please see: OCD? Moi???? Just because I know exactly how many miles of yarn I own??
