Can you have too much yarn? My hubby thinks so, but I don't think he knows about yarn really  Wink

Absolutely not.  Your husband is clearly wrong about this.  If you want, I can have mr.fantastic give him a call and set him straight!

My fiance is having to learn how to live with yarn.  He claims that when we move in together we're going to organize it all into boxes and label it and then make a point of using it.  I just laugh at him.  Some of mine is organized....  some...  not so much.  If I'm actively working on various projects, they're all over the place. 

Mio - did you see my question about your blanket?  What size squares did you use?

Oh bummer, you have to have a Ravelry account to see the pictures. Sad Aw well, one more password to jot down. Wink

This is clearly a sign that you should give knitting a try. Wink

Cheesy thanks fantasticmio!

Ffrogg, perhaps some sort of support group needs to be set up? "Living with a Stash"? "Partners of Creative Types Anonymous"?

Sorry!  I did, but forgot to answer! (This is what I get for checking Craftster before I get out of bed!)  I used all different sizes - and these granny blankets have been part of a collection I'm working on and are in testing right now. If you (or anyone else here!) are interested in testing them, the baby blankets need to be done by August 10th, but I have no set date yet for the adult-sized ones (I'm thinking the new year, maybe).  Just send me a PM with your email address and a link to the one you want to do so I know which one to send!

I do linen stitch when I have too many odd ball skeins...it is amazing how you can combine just about any colors...I think linen stitch is to yarn as a yarn bowl is to ugly fabric... Grin...combined, you get something quite lovely...

dang...I might be done with my chevron scarf by the weekend! Cheesy

jemimah - beautiful knits! I wish I knew how to knit at all...all I can seem to do is knit an ever increasing triangle...crochet makes more sense to me. Thank you for also reminding me that I seriously need to sit down and make some more swap cards since my stash is very low.

I've been around, but have been rather busy with the Embroidery Inchie-along and rather than spamming you guys with my tiny stitches I put them all over there. But I have done quite a bit over the last month so I made a post about it and thought I'd share here too.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434409.msg5216311#msg5216311

So far I count 18 twinchies, one-a-half inchies, and one actual inchie done....I'm a little obsessed haha.
Of course still practicing my stumpwork. I love it.

And that is a beautiful butterfly!

Wau, what an amazing butterfly. I have never tried stumpwork, but have done 'regular' embroidery  - is it very difficult?

Surprisingly the basics are not too hard to master. I found a bunch of random places on the internet for basic tutorials and went from there. I pinned a lot of little tips here if you want to try for yourself...

I might try doing a tutorial on here too for anyone who doesn't want to jump to 5 different sites for bits of info  Cheesy
