Y - Why can't I see the pic? Is it in a particular album?

Have you been lining your purses? I haven't yet. It's my summer project to learn how to sew on a zipper via craftster.

Aw it looks so neat.  I have to clean up again -- as I've been 'busting' I just pull stuff out and leave the skeins half-hanging out, with all the drawers ajar.  Maybe I need a cabinet with shelving like all of you.  So when I open the door, all the skeins tumble out and bury me and I die the death that I deserve: death by yarn avalanche.

ps that red yarn up there looks enticing....is that from your Team Z hat?

Has anyone worked on buttons yet? I'll probably have some time this weekend if no one has done it yet. I was thinking they would say

Y.A.R.N. _____ member, where ____ is the "class" you are--acrylic, wool, or even cashmere etc!

Y.A.R.N. = Yarn-Aholics Recovery Network

What do you guys think?

I just got rid of upwards of 3lbs of wool. and a grocery bag of hats and scarves i would vener wear (those went to the box at the local hospital in the waiting area for cancer patients). Yay- i can see my floor again!

As i was going through though i did notice yarn i would never use- ie love the color, fiber content isnt right, texture isnt what i wasnt, or just plain not enough of it, w/e. I was wondering if other people had a bunch of the yarn that is the same? 

I know i can keep from gettig new yarn if i trade/swap some of my yarn with other people-  i clear out stash, both get something they want, and  i dont feel like  i need to buy a ton of new stuff (liek what normally happens) since im happy w my skein or two of "new" yarn.  (and then i can always trade it again if i dont like it, dont feel obligated  to let it sit around).

I think it would be kinda cool if we could set up a swap (in lj maybe, like knititng_swap) that is geared towards people trying to destash some stuff- we can only get something if we trade something to get it etc  (so while we could link to pages that we are selling stuff on, in the actual community you cant buy the yarn).

(a swap community) Might be useful to have a points system too...instead of how long youve been successful, have it so that everytime you BUY yarn you give yourself a point per skein.  You then should try and swap away that nember of skeins OR MORE so that your stash doesnt get any biigger.

I think you can use Craftster's swap system on their classifieds. That way you aren't limited to just people who like Y.U.!

Y.A.R.N. -- I like that second one a lot!  Good thinking!  I'm way tied up. Vysews, it's so your job now -- you have officiallly volunteered yourself!

I would love to do a swap, although I don't think anyone...seriously ANYONE would want any of my cheap acrylic yarn.....

I realized that I have been in complete denial about my addiction, I opened up my little cabinet that houses my yarn....and balls came rolling out. It's pretty bad, much worse than I expected. I'm too scared to count. I will try and get an inventory soon.

My main problem is that I have so many little balls of ugly stuff.....I think I will do some "magic ball" crocheting, and make a huge disgustingly ugly blanket out of all my odds and ends.

I also bought some sport weight wool a while back, that I don't know what do do with, it was on sale of course. I like the colors, but don't have any projects in mind, any suggestions?
