While I was on vacation, I read a cute memoir centered on the author's attempt to make a very intricate knitting project. It was called 'Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting Dangerously'. I recommend it.

The real takeaway was when the author discussed knitters and their stashes of yarn. Sounds familiar, huh? She used a term that was new to me but applies to many of us.

SABLE - stash amassed beyond life expectancy

Perfect, no?

I can relate, my mother, aunt and grandmother were and are still knitters. Closets full of yarn, I haven't knitted in years, I chose the quilting bug.

My quilting stash isn't that big yet but my yarn stash sure is! (Gotta quit buying yarn and buy fabric instead)

Perfect, yes. My yarn stash and fabric stash are keen competitors. If I only had a year of no dinners to cook, no work to go to, no laundry to be done, no housework, no.............maybe, just maybe I could make a dent in both!

"Stash Total Amassed Beyond Life Expectancy"
