It started off innocently enough. I'd buy yarn for a specific pattern, but wouldn't be able to get to it as quickly as I expected. Then, it progressed to buying a skein just because it was pretty. Next thing I knew, I was signing up for yarn clubs and setting up reminders on my phone for independent dyers' online updates.
All of this has resulted in a yarn stash that is out of control. I currently have 47,932 yards of yarn or about 27.3 miles worth of yarn. That's a bit insane. My goal for 2013 is to knit from my stash and stop buying yarn. We'll see how I do!
