How is THIS even possible? 50,932.1!!!

How is it possible that after all the de-stashing and knitting I STILL have 50,932.1 yards of yarn in my stash - and I haven't been buying!

I DON'T think there is anything wrong with having lots of yarn - I just wish I could knit it faster.

My local friends know how much (a really really lot) yarn I got rid of and I'm still crazy stash lady!

I made a spreadsheet with intended project,name of yarn, & quantity and 50,932.1 yards is what I came up with. I'm sure there is still some yarn hiding somewhere waiting to be tallied up.

50,932.1 Yards = 28.94 MILES


I have enough yarn for 26 pairs of socks, 10 felted bags, 30 dishcloths, 4 Involved scarves, 8 Lace shawls, 7 kids' sweaters, 4 sweaters for me, lady Eleanor, AND the two projects I'm working on now - at this rate I'll be knitting forever!

This is insanity I'm telling you! I have completely LOST my mind (We won't even talk about sewing or other crafts right now)!

I'd better go knit - apparently I have work to do.

I'll keep you posted!

Should you get the de-stashing bug, well, you know where to find me, ha ha!

Wowsa! But the way I see it there is no such thing as too much yarn!

I agree with you completely, there is no such thing as too much yarn. On the other hand, there is something very wrong with not having enough time to knit it all.

I quit telling people how much yarn I have. It's my little secret...mine and the postman, the USP driver...

At least we are all in this together!

You're much braver than I am. I don't even WANT to know how much yarn I have.
