    Default Knitters -- In my ideal stash, there would be .... ?

    cross-posted from Ravelry:

    I was falling asleep, and thinking about yarn.

    And then I thought, “What would be in my perfect stash?”

    Enought yarn for

    2 sweaters
    10 hats
    8 pairs of mittens
    3 vests
    15 pairs of socks.
    2 shawls
    5 cozy scarves
    5 lacy scarves
    That’s close to 2 years worth of knitting for me.

    Now, while I have NO plans to destash, I think I’m going to decrease my buying frenzy and try to work my stash down to levels something like this.

    What would your ideal stash have in it?

    Y'know, there are lots of cotton sweaters in the thrift stores. A lot of them can be frogged for a large supply of cotton from one sweater.

    I once frogged an ugly linen sweater for the yarn. (What was the manufacturer thinking? Plain linen sweater, except for a pattern that emphasized the HIPS!)

    Mine would have the stuff I can't afford...

    Sweaters worth of cashmere & angora
    Enough sock yarn to be considered SABLE
    Enough worsted weight of one colorway to make a whole blanket (or two) without having to hunt down matching dye lots

    LOTS & LOTS of handpainted yarn.
