Very funny! You haven't stored yarn in the freezer yet? I was very afraid of where you might have been going w/ the husband's arse thing...
have you seen? White Buffalo Unspun is 50% off at elann.com...any more nooks and crannies available?
You know what the next stage is, don't you? Placing a huge pile of yarn in the middle of the floor, covering it with fabric, and calling it "furniture."
You have no idea how long it took me to figure out what that last picture was. I kept seeing the leg as some swirly-patterned thing that the bottom of a shirt was resting on. Yes, I have been sick recently. . .
I'm a new reader who just wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying your blog! There aren't too many blogs that are well written AND make me laugh out loud, and the ones that do are promptly put on my blog list--which now will include yours!
Thanks for some great chuckles and photos!
Last year I came home after spending a day at the market at Stitches West, with my hands *almost* empty, thinking, see what a good girl I was? Aren't you gonna be proud of me, dear?
As I opened the door, my husband loudly grinned, "Caught!" My two boxes of cashmere and camelhair yarn had finally arrived, of course while I was gone; they'd been my reason I'd been doing such a good job of resisting further temptation.
Shortly after, my sweetie did build me cabinets over my washing machine; my folks came visiting, and they said, oh good, that'll hold all your yarn! He burst out laughing.
I didn't tell him why, when the freezer died in November, we had to buy such a big one to replace it; I DO store some of my yarn in there!
I do store yarn in the freezer. I didn't mention it because it goes without saying. It has the advantage of being mothproof!
Firstly, mmm, ice wine.
Then, it makes me happy that you own both "Glorious Knitting" and "Knitted Sweater Style". I knew you had good taste.
I must confess my stash has a room of its own.
I have recently given much of it away, after my friend Nadine pointed out its ability to outlive me and my children significantly.
But it still has its own room.
Yes, I'm ashamed.
Finally, Joe has nice legs.
Can we see more, please?
Pray tell Ms. Harlot where you store your fleece? Inquiring minds do want to know.
I have heard it told that some anon types of the spinning persuasion stuff their lovely dressy pillow cases with washed fleece.
Yes storing err hiding fibre of any sort is a sham. We need to stand proud in our acquisition prowess. Some naysayers have the temerity to call it an addiction!
Kind regards to all and that includes Miss Millie.
I love it. Just think you are surrounded by yarn, everywhere. Its a way to keep you happy. *hehe* love the pictures
Deacon's benches, and foot stools that open are perfect for hiding yarn. No one ever looks in them.
My husband used to go the "What more yarn!" route. I pointed out that I don't drink, gamble or do drugs. I am not an obsessive shopper (wool doesn't count) Since we are aquainted with couples whose marriages have broken up over these problems, he saw my point. Now he just builds me more shelves. When we were on holidays this year he actually pointed out a yarn store I had missed. It takes 25 years, but they can be trained!
Dear Stephanie's Husband,
Maybe the mice were just trying to give us a beefcake pic.
This is my first time here and was wondering how often posts are made?
