Oh, my goodness ... my oldest daughter from "up north" visited last week and has been learning to knit (she had me help her get started with socks while visiting). With a few exceptions, I told her she could have anything she wanted from my stash, which she said had more yarn than the LYS where she lives. I also gave her duplicate needles, markers, counters, project bags (evil snicker here). But she said this does not mean I can stop knitting for her family.

She took LOTS of yarn home with her, and now I have all this extra room to fill up again just when I said I was not going to buy more yarn this year.

She is expecting her first grandchild in November (my first great-grand) ... do you suppose that has something to do with this?

You've expanded the definition of "shopping in the stash!"

Hee hee! That is some superb enabling, Donna. Nice work! And congratulations on all that free space! Yarn abhors a vacuum.

How do.

Love that shopping spree story. It is lovely to enable, I must say!
