Warn the kiddies. Yarn porn ahead.

Yarn porn

Last weekend, Michael's had Bernat Berella 4 marked down to $1.49 a skein.  Berella is my absolute favorite acrylic worsted.  And I had a "25% off entire purchase" coupon for anything in the store, including sale/clearance items.  Need I say more?

BTW, that pile of yarn is about four afghans' worth. And I believe this latest purchase finally elevates me to SABLE* status.

*Stash
 Accumulated
 Beyond
 Life
 Expectancy

ETA:  Yep, definitely SABLE.  I just added up the yardage in my stash.  More than 23 miles of yarn live in the closet of the spare bedroom.  And on the floor of the spare bedroom.  And that's not even counting the partial skeins of unidentifiable yarn inherited from my late grandmother or the spools and cones of crochet thread residing in a basket in the living room.  I'm doomed, I tell you.  Doomed.

  1. I love knowing that I'm not the only one with a ridiculously HUGE stash! The next time I "reorganize" I need to take a picture! I have 4 LARGE bins, that are 3'x2'x2' and then 3 of the long under bed storage things FULL, and then misc bags all over the place! But it seems to never shrink, even after giving my roommate 15 complete skeins!

  2. Mine never shrinks either. *shrug* I don't worry about it much.However,
    I really must curtail my yarn binge-ing for the time being. Spouse opened the
    yarn closet a couple of weeks ago, and nearly fainted.

  3. lol, I know what you mean! I keep telling myself I will not buy more yarn until I eliminate at least 2 tubs that I already have, either by using it or giving it away. Then the boyfriend requests something special, and "special" yarn has to be bought for it…
