Welcome to And All That Yarn, my blog about my knitting experiences as I work my way through my growing yarn stash and the people I meet and places I go along the way.
When I recently moved to Northern California near Lake Tahoe, I came face to face with the reality of my yarn stash or SABLE (Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy). In the Bay Area where we lived, my job required having a temperature controlled storage unit for my samples. Only problem was that I had very few samples, so what to do with this great space? Hmm...
My ""yarn collection" rested comfortably next to units filled with wine collections and conveniently out of sight. Now I have my own room - a "craft room" and I find myself surrounded
by boxes and plastic bins filled with yarn that I have collected over the years. The ghosts of Stitches past, as it were. I'm presently not working so I have plenty of time to organize my stash and get rid of all that yarn I no longer want - easy, huh? Not so easy! Hence the yarn blog - a way to keep track of my knitting progress and projects as I work my way through all that yarn!
