Stash in, stash out...

So, I have a few things up at the Destash site right now. Some yarn, some spinning wheel parts... There's a bunch more stacked in a corner of the sewing room, too. If no-one's interested, they'll go to eBay or be donated to a knitting charity. In a way, it goes totally against my natural grain to be pushing yarn out the door. I paid for this stuff; I wanted it so badly that I got a little dizzy when I placed the order. I'm sure you know how it is. But... I'm sick of having so much stuff I can no longer organise it (a very affluent condition, I know, but denial won't make anything better). Part of me thinks I ought to use this stuff to knit donations for some of the incredibly worthwhile knitting charities out there. But knitting is my hobby, and I enjoy it most when I knit for me. As you will have gathered from the above, I'm not short of a bob or two. I'm not on the bread line (though current circumstances mean that the budget is being watched for once). But I am time-poor. I would rather donate money (or the yarn itself!) to charities, and keep my knitting time for myself. And yet... and yet... Yarn seems also to have flowed the wrong way; from Destash into my home. Tell me it's not beautiful, though:
10 skeins silk garden. I am weak.

wow, that marigold yarn is a wonderful colour! And the silk garden is great. It's such fun to collect the stuff, and such fun to make it into something, but it does take time!

Oh Ota, this did make me smile!

I am weak too! I am trying desperately not to add to my papercrafting stash. I went to the massive Hobbycrafts/Art Materials Live/Crafts for Christmas show at the NEC last weekend, which is generally fatal!
I went with a plan of things I really 'needed' - a 12" by 12" storage file for my scrapbook papers, some Herma glue refills and a revolving tool station to finally organize my desk. I still also managed to buy a £10 goodie bag (filled with £30 worth of product - how could I resist?!), some eyelets, some fancy peel-offs, an acrylic stamp, some mags - 4 for £5 and some flock and foil.
See, I am VERY weak!

P.S. The yarn is lovely :-) .
