My word

I’ve just entered my stash on Ravelry (courtesy of a really dull conference call, and having already emailed my stash spreadsheet to myself at work).  Now, bear in mind that this is *not* entirely complete, and it is also only my knitting yarns; no weaving or dyeing yarns.

According to Ravelry, I have 88 stash ‘items’ (i.e. yarn/colourway combinations).  That doesn’t sound like a lot, until you realise that each of those items is probably, on average, one project’s worth of yarn.  If it takes me a month (again, on average) to knit one project, that is over seven years’ worth of knitting.

I know I have a lot of stash.  It’s no surprise.  But this is a new way of looking at it.


  • Ah, but now you need a spare week or so to put up all those pictures!
    I’m sure I have 7 years worth of sock yarns, since I knit a couple or 3 pairs of socks a year. That is a terrible way to think of it!

  • Not to mention, a very BRAVE way of looking at it….:)
