  • A Larger Problem

    It gives a lovely light.
    -Edna St. Vincent Millay

    I won a contest. Normally this is good news.(Here was the contest.)

    But the goods arrived just as I finished updating my yarn inventory spreadsheet for more Ravelry fun.The total? 496.5 skeins and 108,296 yards of yarn. And this doesn't count oddballs I couldn't characterize. The 20,000 yards of laceweight on cones are killing me here, but clearly there's a larger problem. We'll talk more about that later. We'll also talk about the limitations of Flickr (and why most of this still isn't uploaded, but that's a topic for another day.

    In the meantime, here's a teaser:
    Rowena is all things lovely.

    Rowena looks so pretty! After seeing yours being knit I just had to add the pattern to my list of must knits! I can't wait to see it modeled.

    108,000 yards...doesn't it make you wish San Diego were colder? ;)

    Oooo, the ribbon and buttons are perfect with the color of the yarn.

    I *heart* Ravelry (though I just got new yarn too that now has to be photo-ed and uploaded). Rowena is so pretty in pink. Look at you clearing things off the needles!

    Rowena looks very sweet.
    I'm completely, totally addicted to Ravelry. It's also getting to be a problem.

    Rowena looks very girly!
    The last time I added up the yards in my yarn database, there were over 90,000 yards of yarn. There is no way I'm going to add it up again. There have been many more additions than subtractions.

    I love the ribbon and buttons you chose for Rowena! It's beautiful!

    As far as the yardage, well at least you have a lot to choose from! :) And I agree that the lace weight unnecessarily inflates that number.

    Ah, "First Fig." A favorite poem of mine (and Jackie Kennedy Onassis).

    I don't think I have that much yarn, but I never counted.

    I haven't even started uploading my stash yet. This is impressive! And, more on Rowena already!

    I am actually optimistic that having photographed and cataloged all my yarn will help me control my recent upsurge in stashing tendencies. Having everything so accessible, visually, helps remind me of how much great stuff I have in my stash and gets me excited about it. I hope it has a similar effect on you (if that's what you want).

    Wow, I thought I had a lot of yarn. I'll be curious to see what you do with yours. . .
