2021 – The State of my Yarn Stash

     Hello everyone, how are you today?

     Today’s post is…well, it’s not going to be a very interesting post to read because it’s largely just a numbered list of all my yarn with some information that I can remember about it off the top of my head (because why would I actually just look it up?). I wanted to get to grips with my yarn stash so I spent some time taking picture of all my yarn and listing out what it is so that I can look back at the end of the year and see how I’ve done at using what I have because what I have is a lot!

     I realised after taking all the pictures that I forgot to photograph the yarn from two Crochet Society boxes so add four more balls of yarn to the list for a total of 107 I guess. It’s a lot of yarn, especially when you consider that no. 40 on the list is 10 balls of yarn.

     What’s the state of your yarn stash at the moment?

  1. Now why didn’t I think of taking photos? That definitely would have saved some of the confusion I’ve had just using Excel and trying to remember what particular colour I meant.
    Your stash is just fine – even after a year of whittling it down I’ve still got over 200 skeins!

    1. I was originally just going to have an excel sheet or something but I realised that it would get confusing with the amount of different brand shades of grey 😀 Having photos is definitely making it easy to shop my stash for projects – like when I was crocheting the neon tetras and didn’t want to get more yarn for such a small project, I was able to just quickly check the photos to see if any of the yarns I had might work instead of digging through draws.
      Definitely worth going back and doing if you feel like tacking your stash again which boy, that’s a lot of yarn! It’s sounds like both heaven and hell to have that much yarn somehow 😀


  2. What lovely colours! I’m trying to work my way through my fibre stash at the moment – I have about 9 sacks of washed raw fleece waiting to be processed and I try not to think about the boxes of yarn (not to mention the unwashed fleeces in the garage waiting for dry weather!). At least while we have yarn we won’t be bored anytime soon!! 😊
