I’ve been crocheting for over 40 years but have really been enjoying it since my retirement three years ago. I’ve got a gigantic stash of yarn, due in part to my mother-in-law who picks up donated yarn from the Linus meetings. Some of the yarn is donated and some of the yarn is bought with donated money. I also buy a lot of yarn, I can’t pass up all the pretty colors!
Here is my yarn stash before I moved it into the RV:
Most of my stash is stored under our king size bed. In the beginning I only had 4 tubs. After a small amount of whining (maybe a little more than a small amount), Mark graciously removed some more of his things out from under the bed and I got another big tub to fill up.
That worked pretty well last summer, but then, I don’t know what happened! For some reason I bought a whole bunch of yarn. Lots of different colors and a whole lot of pink! There is a wonderful craft store in Kerrville (Craft Town) that has the best selection of yarn I’ve ever seen, I just couldn’t help myself, I wanted it all.
My stash has started creeping to other areas of the RV, mainly, the bottom of the closet. So far, it’s only on my side of the closet.
I’m crocheting plenty of afghans but my stash doesn’t seem to be going down. Hummm, I’m not sure how that is happening.
All the afghans I made while we were in Colorado have been donated (three full-size afghans and 15 preemie afghans with matching caps).
These are the latest afghans that have been given to my mother-in-law for her to take to the next Linus meeting.
I’ve got enough crochet patterns to keep me busy for at least 50 more years. I’ve already started on the next one.
