The study of stash. This is what I am majoring in. There, I said it.

Think that it has become necessary to transition into a more project oriented yarn shopper.

From the astute observations of the Yarn Harlot in her new book Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off, I learn that I am very much a process knitter. Suppose this means that I shop as a process as well. But it's got to stop!

Whenever a knitter is unhappy with his/her stash, even though it is the cat's meow, changes need to be made. I personally have been dissatisfied with the over abundance of onesies and twosies. You know, you see some yarn that is attractive, but you can't imagine committing just yet. You just buy one or two skeins declaring that, "it'll make a nice hat or even a hat/scarf set. Yeah, that's it"!

I'm totally o.k. with having more shawl yarn than I'll ever care to knit, but that onesies stuff has got to go!

The transition will begin with a cataloging of my stash. Gotta put the cards on the table. If I don't bad things will happen next time I'm tempted to purchase from the next awesome online sale and duplicate what I've got. Hey, if it can happen with my book collection, it's not a stretch to see this coming with yarn...
So check it out,

this is the hopelessly odd yarn. Everything else has been mated and slated for projex!
