Flashing you with Yarn porn

Ok, I've heard it called a lot of things, but mainly Flashing the stash and yarn porn. When you post photo's of your stash on the blog. Well since I've shown you knitting, planting, kids, and dogs, I suppose I might as well show you the hoard. Maybe another day I will show you my 2-3 UFO's (Yes there are only a few, I have learned to let go, rip out, and reinvent). Along the way in the future I may just show off my fiber stash, but that's a lot less impressive I think. A lot of white, black and grey wool. Some tussah silk, some hand dyed tussah silk, and fawn and choco black alpaca. Not much to look at really.
Now my yarn stash...WOW there are a great array of colors sizes, and fibers. Wool, silk, nylon, alpaca, cotton, linen, cashmere, and acrylic in reds, golds, pinks, blues, blacks, whites, greens, browns, purples... no orange or yellow though. Not a big fan of those colors. There is everything from chunky to lace weight, solids to variegated, and plain to novelty. I am So eclectic.

Ever seen Disney's The Emperor's New Groove? Where Yzma says, " Ah, How shall I do it?" Should I arrange it by fiber? Color? Or just lay it all out? Hmmm maybe both? Well here goes.
Ladies and gentleman of the fiberworld, artists of all ages welcome to the stash.....

Ok so I divided it up by fiber. But now looking at the photo's it doesn't really matter. Please keep in mind this is a king sized bed, and this is only my commercial knitting yarn. No handspun, no yarn that has been Donated to me by a certain organization. Ahem! I suppose it's just not big enough if A) it can fit on a bed, B) it does not cover the bed, and C) ...uh, what was C again? Oh well. It's mine and I love it. I've only been at it for 2-3 years. I can remember my first stash yarn. It's a Brown Sheep handpainted wool mohair blend called Strawberry Fields. It's still in there. Wow. . I'm getting all teary eyed. All that's missing is some pure silk yarn, and some Lorna's Laces... Hmmm, Mothers Day is coming up. Yeah
Gotta go!
Toodles!
