Special Basket = Wollmeise and Sundara FMC

A picture inside my cupboard which contains:
TOP (left to right) Balled sock yarns & sport + DK weight, and Bulky weight + Handspuns (done by Phelia/Sinknitty)
BOTTOM (left to right): Worsteds (cascade, patons merino, etc.), MALABRIGO (worsted, twist, Rios 00 the chunky and the sock are with the chunkys and the socks)
Close ups of the inside:

Sock Yarn balled up + Dk & sport

Bulky in balls, Hansspun & the skeined bulky

Worsteds (cascade + Patons merino)

Missing is 5 skeins of Rios that I balled up to start a blanket. :)

Also I ordered a bunch of cascade 220 superwash for gifts and maybe JUST MAYBE some more Mal Rios snuck into my cart.

In accepting this award presented to me by HSKS for the largest stash I'd like to thank the following:
  • Rowena Bladvak/Ronni-licious, my enabler
  • The Loopy Ewe for may many credits and a fabulous selection
  • WEBS for cheap cheap prices
  • Malabrigo for being so addicting
  • Carrie at Cosmic fibers, her Harry Potter colors are what got me into sock yarns and I'm now in my third year the nefarious club (!!!!)
  • Megaera/Chelle for actually discovering that I had the largest stash
  • My fabulous frinds that went on the yarn crawl with me in California. (CelticMommy, Ronni-licios, Neila, Staroftwilight, Jenean, Sherry ....)
  • My bf's parents for letting us rent a house that allows me to have a yarn room.
  • Anyone I've ever swapped with because they've introduced me to even more yarns
  • My mom and grandmother who have fabric stashes that inspired me to stash.

OMG Lady! Your stash is fantabulous! I wish I had the time to color code mine. I tired to separate mine by type, sock/lace, worsted, cotton, felting, large quantities, etc. Didn't quite work as well as I would like. The stash is currently hanging in my craft room. Which is mostly fabric right now. It's just not able to give the yarn justice.

Awww thanks. I only have beads (which are small) and yarn... WELL I have some art supplies but they're still in storage at my moms. I have to go get them.

I also got lucky in being able to rent the boyfriend's parents old house. They moved to Utah and couldn't sell it so I have room. Before it was all smooshed in a shelf in my closet and in a tub. Then there wasn't room for my shoes. That was sad.

I love your stash. Mine doesn't even come close to that. And I love how colorful it is.

Way to go on that stash! Love the colors in your Wollmeise and Sundara basket. I have ONE skein of Sundara that is still marinating - waiting for the perfect project. What do you like to do with it?

Lucy said...

I've made 1 pair if sundara socks. I'm about to start a sundara shawlette in one of my oranges. Mostly I pet it and just love how very pretty it is.
