Startitis

My stash is pretty impressive, and I'm really proud of it.  I love yarn and yarn makes me happy, and I believe it's important to surround ourselves with things that we love and that make us happy.  That being said, some of my stash is years old, and it's busting at the seams.  Since moving back into my parents' house after college, I try to be mindful of how much stuff I have, since I don't have an entire apartment to let it spill out into.  I have dedicated stash storage, and when that starts to overflow, I need to address it.  Fortunately, my overflowing stash is aligning with what's looking like an impressive case of startitis.

Less fortunately, I have a bunch of big projects planned right now.  I have a new design that needs to be swatched and knit.  I need to get caught up on work knitting so that when it's time to do Xmas knitting it doesn't kick my butt.  This is literally the worst time for me to get startitis, and since I've really only been working on big projects lately, it's looking like all I want to knit is stuff that will be done in a couple days.

What I mean to say is, I tripped while evaluating my Deep Stash and came up with a new cowl.  There's a couple more coming soon too.  I'm not sorry.

    So agree with this! I spent a long time feeling bad about having a big stash, but have grown to accept it without guilt - because really, I love every skein. It's so inspiring to have it all around for playing with color, and squishing, and occasionally, even knitting!
