There's a "flash your stash" thread over on ravelry that I've been enjoying (read, drooling over *laughs*) Some of the stashes people have are just huge! They're like personal yarn stores ;)
Anyway, I decided to get all of my yarn out (including the novelty yarns that I usually pretend don't exist...) and take a picture of my 6 month old stash.
Not a great picture because the light was pretty terrible yesterday (what happened to all the sun?) but here it is... My little stash *smiles*
I think it's a fairly healthy amount given how short a time I've been knitting - and does show some restraint because I keep wanting to buy more and more ;) I can see why people end up with so much!
