Flashing even more than my stash.......

Ok, a really quick and dirty picture of my stash. Not the biggest, not the smallest. Still, too much for me - I'm trying to knit this down this year and not buy too much more. Looking through Ravelry and reviewing my stash regularly I've come up with a lot of projects I'd like to make with the yarns I have.And by posting this next picture, I feel like I'm bearing my soul. Ick. This is the 'spare room', where most of the stash currently already lives and which I'd like to be a craft room. Not just for me - the boys have quite a bit of crafty stuff too. But right now, it's a dumping ground.

A lot of this has to go to storage (the crate of easter 'stuff'), or Goodwill (piles of clothes) or is paperwork to be sorted (this year's taxes yet to be completed) or just re-stored somewhere else at home (the boys puzzles).
While I was waiting for these pictures to upload I packed up 2 bags of baby blankets/duvets for Goodwill and put them in my car to be delivered tomorrow. It's a start.
So let's consider this the 'before' picture.......

I love the colors! You have some great yarn there. Next year we're both going to have to go at this full force. :)

whoo! That's quite a collection there.

Maybe instead of a KAL we can have and OAL (organize along)

Who doesn't have a space like that? A spare room, a garage, a utility room, a closet- I would bet thateven the most organized among us have a drawer or so of things that don't go elsewhere or need sorting. At least yours holds a gorgeous stash!
