Out of Control Stash

I have evicted my fiber stash from the craft room closet.  It was taking up way too much space, it needs to find another home.  

What's more troubling to me is that I have quadrupled (and then some) my stash since Spring.  My stash used to fit in one of the plastic totes.  Then I bought two more matching ones ... this was still OK for me, but at that time I said, no more!  Since I couldn't buy any more totes (notice how I left off the what in no more) I found some totes in the house and re-purposed the large clear one and the small purple one to fit additional stash in.


Below is the overflow that won't fit into the totes.  Its not good to squash fiber, so there is a bit of air space in all of those totes ... a bit.  



This is what my fiber stash looked like only a little over 6 months ago!


In my defense, I did attend two fiber festivals this year :o)  Doesn't matter that only 14% of this stash came from festivals ... the festivals spawned the additional internet purchases ... right ... right?!?!

Looks like you better get spinning!

I have the same problem! I bought another tote to hold my overflow stash and then... it just filled up. Sure, a lot of it was yarn from my friend's destash, but...

HEY! Didn't you start the Surmount the Stash challenge? Shouldn't you be setting a better example? LOL!!

Time to do some spinning alright! So many pretty colours!

Maybe you should just focus on your fiber stash rather than your yarn stash :). Maybe you can teach me to spin and I can use some of your fiber :). Ok, just kidding. I know it can be stressful when you find all the hidden stuff, but don't let that stop you from working through your stash!

Am I to assume that Surmount the Stash will continue into NEXT year? LOL

Maybe I can get on board then. My stash has ALSO grown this year. :::sigh:::
