The Benefits of Photographing Your Yarn Stash | roxie & louSo, after intending to do it for absolute ages, I finally took the time to photograph my yarn stash for my Ravelry account. (Now, have I uploaded those yet pictures to Ravelry? No, I have not.)

And I have to say: it really helped me figure out what yarn I should – and should not – buy.

Turns out, I have a literal rainbow of colors; I own every single color of the rainbow – except pink. (And really, is pink part of the rainbow? Technically, no.)

Most of my yarn is acrylic, as I’m concerned about cost. While I would love to buy $30/skein yarn, it is not in my budget at the moment. I am thinking about buying through KnitPicks, though, as I’ve heard a lot of good things about them.

Most of it is worsted weight, so I couldn’t make a sock out of what I have, which is one of the next projects that I’d like to undertake. That, or a Christmas stocking…

I think, for now, I’m going to choose my patterns for my yarns, and not vice versa. It’s stashbusting time!
