Yes sir, yes sir, 18 bags full!

While cleaning/re-arranging the house on Sunday, I kept finding odd balls and bags of wool hidden strategically in "out of the way" places, where I'd obviously put it six months or a year ago and completely forgotten about. So I spent the afternoon re-organising my stash instead of the living room (a lot more fun— our couches are heavy!).

I had 18 big carrier bags full of wool, acrylic, mohair, alpaca, nylon, cashmere, silk, and unidentified weird bits. As far as I can work out, the only (common) fibre not represented was angora, and that's not even definite— there was something suspiciously fluffy in the miscellaneous yarns bag, but I wouldn't swear it's not a plastic.

In the trunk

(Worst camera phone photo ever. Blame my eyesight, it *looked* like it was in focus... Why yes, I do need new contact lenses!)

This is what I ended up with. Three 100 x 60 x 60cm tin trunks absolutely crammed with yarn. The only thing keeping the bottom trunk closed is the weight of the other two trunks above.

The stuff on top of the stash-stack is all the yarns I found *after* I'd forced the lids down, that simply won't fit.
So... does anyone want to raid my stash? I could really use the space!
