Flash Your Stash 2006!

While I finish selecting and cleaning up the Norwegian photoshoot, here's my addition to Flash Your Stash 2006. I hadn't planned to participate, but thought it might not be a bad way for me to take inventory of my stash and do a bit of reorganizing. And the weather was so nice this weekend, how could I not take advantage of that beautiful natural light?

First off, here's where I keep the majority of my stash (forgive the blur, I promise the rest are better):

Stash storage system


Both the basket and the wicker cabinet are from Target.

Now, the yarn...all of these pictures have those nifty Flickr notes about type of yarn, colorways, and destined projects, so please give 'em a click and read on!

Sock yarns
The top basket in the cabinet holds my nice sock yarns.

More sock yarn
The second drawer holds leftover Fair Isle yarns, and a little more sock yarn.

Luxury yarns...*shame*
The bottom holds my more extravagant yarns...thank god it only fills one basket! But oooh, these are nice.

Miscellaneous
The top layer of the wicker basket...

Wool
...and the bottom.

Of course, I have a couple of other stash places, namely a bag in my closet full of acrylics, and miscellaneous bags of leftover sock yarn. But other than that, this is my entire stash! Small and sweet, manageable but still indulgent. That's how I like it! Hope you enjoyed the yarn porn, and check in later for pictures of my completed Norwegians!

  • Thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog.

    I'm so sorry about your cat. I had a cat who died from cancer, so I feel your pain. (She really was my baby. I've had other cats, but she was the one who, even into adulthood, would try to nurse on my hair and nuzzle in my neck! Even though she was probably about 20 pounds...) I think the occasional indulgence on gorgeous yarn and a relaxing but fulfilling project is wonderful. Especially when you need some comforting. :-)
