I'm thinking about it.
I may just go for it.
Another Yarn Yard Sale.
First Saturday in May (raindate second Saturday in May).
April 1st was Flash your Stash day on Ravelry, and I have been thinking. I love having yarn around, that's not news. I have always loved picking out yarn, imagining what I will do with it, I've designed with it, I've dyed it. And yes I enjoy buying yarn, especially at Local Yarn Shops.
Since the beginning of the year, I have not bought any yarn at all. I am Cold Sheeping (like going cold turkey, but related to knitting it is a sheep), in an effort to use up what I have. I have never come out and said this, because I love my LYSs a lot and I want them to stay in business and I want to keep supporting them. The Stash I have is a personal thing, the one aside from the Professional Stash. So far they've kind of lived side by side. Now I am coming out of my private sphere and saying that I think I have come to a point where the Personal Stash is becoming a burden to me.
I don't like that it takes up so much room in my house.
I don't like that it takes up so much room in my head.
I am tired of having to think about that I will do with it all.
I need to knit with Periwinkle Sheep yarns much more than I have been.
I am at a different phase in my life than I was when I first bought a lot of these yarns.
It is time to find, sort, set up, and move it out. First there will be a Yarn Yard Sale, and whatever won't go then will be donated or sold on ravelry.
Yes I will keep some of it, of course. I am keeping the yarn that is the most precious to me for various reasons.
The rest is going to be set free. 'cause I have a feeling it's tired of being cooped up in all those bins.
