I said I wasn’t going to do it, (and I was backing out after my last blog post, thanks for your encouragement Belinda!). But I have done it and it’s taken all my weekend and strength to do it. Once I asked myself the question, ‘how much yarn do I have in metres?’, it’s a question I needed answered.
A lot, was not a good enough answer for me. It’s not that I’m going to do anything with that figure. Despite the fact you’re probably all disgusted with this achievement (!) I don’t plan on going on a yarn diet. My feelings toward my stash have not changed, except to say I’m happy to know exactly what I have, give or take (who are we kidding, give/give) a few thousand yards, for left-overs not counted; odd balls of cotton not counted; handspun not counted; let’s be reasonable here, I wanted a ballpark figure and I have it!
My yarn database on Ravelry will make project planning so much easier, I’m looking forward to utilising Ravelry this way. Can you believe they still don’t make us pay to use the site?
Unfortunately some of the photographs are a bit dark… once I started, I didn’t want to stop, and I hate using flash. Whilst I like having nice photos, my priority was getting it done as quickly as possible.
