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!

black/multi brights...another afghan
sock and wool yarn in DD's trunk
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)
mohair yarn in another drawer of the same...slowly being knitted into a scarf
white shelves hold fabric bins w/yarn that I've used...just don't know what to do w/the left-overs

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.  =]
