Have I told you the story? I don't think so. Well, you know that I am not a yarn-patter. That means when I get new stash, I usually put them away in the closet instead of displaying them around ... which is more convenient for a patter or even a sniffer. My old home is on the whole a very dim and dark place ... without too much sunlight into the living area, not to mention the inner corner of the closet, where there is no electricity fixture. And you all know that how yarn stash grows (too fast, I have to say), right? Yarns placed in a dark closet is like molds spreading in damp corner! And when we unpacked the boxes containing the stash, Husband was amazed at how big it is. Also consider the fact that it was the first time the stash was exposed to full day light ... and the first time he was aware how much I have!
"I think you have enough yarns to knit for the rest of your life!" That was what he said. Well, since I am already 42 years old, that may not be too far away from the truth! hahaha ... But seriously, I am exercising much harsher control on myself. And I discover that not stashing actually means I save lots of time going to LYSs and browsing online shops ... not to mention the money.
