Flash Your Stash - 2007

Well it is time again for the Knittyboard Flash Your Stash. Last year I dragged out all my yarn and took individual pictures of each variety and created a slide show to show it all off. This year I went up to the closet in the spare bedroom where the yarn is stashed and much to my shock - the stash had grown.

I wasn't sure what to do. Part of me wanted to get out all the yarn and just sit and look at all the pretty skeins, hanks, and balls of yarn I've amassed in my relatively short knitting career. I thought it would be fun to pile it up all around me and set the camera on the tripod and use the timer to get a portrait of a knitter and her stash.

I could have spent all day just going through everything, handling all the yarn, and dreaming of all the projects I want to knit. I'd probably still be up in that spare bedroom if I had opted for that course of action. So instead, I opted for a mosaic of some of my favorite yarn and pictures that I've taken recently. If you want to see more pictures of my stash, view my flickr set.
Although, I think I'll have to try the portrait idea for an upcoming Fiber Friday.

The thing I like second best about seeing everyone's stash is the way they present it. I love the mosaic! You should do a self portrait once you get time!

You definitely have some beautiful colors in there.

Beautiful, beautiful! You do such an excellent job of photography for your blog. I'm afraid to flash my stash-my family reads by blog. They said enough about the Fiber Room

Jessica said...

Haha. No one said anything about the guy hiding in the yarn! Smart man. I love it when our men get into our knitting. ;P

Very nice!

The thought of even getting all my yarn together in one place is just too overwhelming. I have a room that is supposed to be for the yarn, but I also have a closet where I keep the sock yarn and anything else that I'm too lazy to walk upstairs with! Not to mention the 2 drawers under my coffee table; I keep cleaning it out and somehow it is still full of yarn!

Hate to tell ya, but that looks pretty tame next to mine, partly because, I'm sure, mine is all over the place...literally. The thought of putting it all in one place is a little scary.
