I gave up on hiding my yarn from my husband.  Cheesy I have 3 paper case boxes, 2-18gal totes, & a 3 drawer cart thingie full of yarn.  Shocked

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

green knitted afghan for DD...to put into trunk...=]
wool Patchwork project in dresser drawer upstairs
cottons for washcloths and scrubbies in another drawer(old buffet)

Hiding skeins of yarn is easier than hiding bolts of fabric! (trust me)  Roll Eyes Now the problem since I cant drive any more is convincing hubby to stop and buy me one more skein!  Grin  Kim

Yuppers...=]

After living w/my stash, DH is beginning to understand the different yarns and what I'd NeeD a different one for...sometimes.  =]  I really only get wool now for special projects...Patchwork Sampler, etc.  I still get yarn second hand if it is a real bargain and something I'll use right away.  Good acrylics(usually varigated) make great potholders that I can buy really cheap and sell for profit.

I go on and on...*so sorry*

Where do you get second hand yarn from?? *takes notes* I'm always on the lookout for wool yarn, especially white/undyed wool since I dye my own. Smiley

I have to admit...it's a lot easier to hide new skeins of yarn when you have a larger stash. *muahahaha*

Since I derailed the thread with yarn storage trickery I took some snaps of the granny hex for the spare room and the motif square that will go into the bedroom granny babette to get us back. =)

I have done some more work on it but I ran out of that pink, and I dont think I can get any more because it was an older skein of yarn I had recieved in a swap.  How ever I may do blue flowers to go with it.  I got some more work done on it and will be posting pics later today sometime.

Oh, you just never know when a good stash of yarn will show up.  I don't go thrift shopping as much(littler home, less space!)  I do go to a favorite spot when I'm visiting my sister in Chicagoland.  A Salvation Army store there as some great yarns and their prices are very good.  I've gotten two whole skeins of Fisherman's wool, natural color, for $1.50, even though the Hobby Lobby price sticker was on each for $9.99!! =] 

I'm working on my second-to-last row of Hibiscus/Snowflake squares!!  The end is in site!

Great squares/motifs BennuBird...very nice colors.  =]
