Stash or not?

I keep thinking I don't really have a stash. I hardly ever buy yarn, but have gotten big amounts of yarn from Iceland from time to time. One time about year ago when I returned to the US from Iceland and then a bunch the other day when my stepmom came for a visit. So while putting the baby to sleep (she's not really a baby anymore, she turned 2 yesterday) I thought I take a stock of what I have. Turns out I have more then I thought. Here is a list of projects I have yarn for - only 'virgin' wool. This excludes WIPs, leftover yarn and odd skeins of yarn.


  • 1x baby sweater (like the 5 hour baby sweater)
  • 2x shawls (from eingirni, Icelandic 1 ply wool)
  • 1x mittens for Clint
  • 1x slippers for Clint
  • 2 pair socks
  • 1x crochet sweater for me
  • 1x tank top/skirt for Ása (baby cotton)
  • 16+ washcloths, facecloths, bibs etc. (things that take less than a skein of kitchen cotton
  • 3x denim bibs
  • 1x pedal bib


The list is a lot longer than I had assumed. But still not too long. I could do this in a half a year, providing I'm spending at least 2 hours a day knitting. It'll be interesting to see at the end of the year how many projects are left on the list.

That really isn't much. At least not in my book. Admirable restraint, I'd say. ;-)
