So... I recently decided that it was time to start going into my bins of yarn and doing an inventory of what I have on hand... It's funny, your knitting life really gets put into perspective, especially the farther back I delved into my bins and bins and bins of yarn!
The last bin shocked me the most... it was full of Lion Brand, Caron, and Red heart! Everything was Acrylic, and I had subconsciouly tucked it all away in the back of my closet... it even had my remnants of yarn from my ill-fated homespun sweater! Some of the yarn I don't even remember purchasing... or what I made with it originally... Like Ribbon yarn... what the heck did I make with that Ribbon yarn!?
Needless to say... I've started looking for local charities or groups that can use the stuff. I don't see myself needing any of it anytime soon (and if I did, the stuff is so readily available it wouldn't kill me to just go out and buy it).
I thought it was just funny how my boxes progressed from Acrylics to the "good stuff," it's only been 7 years since I started knitting and I'm surprised at how much I've amassed. The pictures below are only a sampling of what i came across...
Once I've found a place to donate all that yarn, I'll have a whole bin to fill with new stuff :)
