Wish me luck!


I've taken most of the day to work on my yarn inventory. Honey (Hubby) and The Dork (son) are gone for a few more days at camp, so I could pull all the bins out and see what I really have. I don't dare do it while they're home because I've now taken over the entire bed, and half the living room. No, I'm not showing you those pictures!

I'd like to blame the blogging bug for this project, because I thought I should find all my purple yarn! I did, and piled it all on the patio table. Hmmm, over 85 different purple yarns (I only grabbed one skein of each, so don't ask how many total purple skeins I have...) I wanted to put it up as the picture in my header, but Blogger wouldn't load the pic correctly. So, it'll be here, for the moment.

Then, I realized that a lot of the yarn had migrated to various places and tote bags, and started to get it back together. Then, I thought as long as it was out, I should take some photographic evidence. Which evolved into updating the Excel spreadsheet, and maybe will eventually get me to admit that I have a yarn habit! Eventually, the pics will go into a Flickr account, and eventually into Ravelry. I'm only behind about 5,000 more people!

Time to get back to photographing and updating!

Dude, that's a lot of purple yarn. I'd do that with all my pink to plum yarn, but I don't think I have a surface big enough....

Yup, that's the extended patio table and lots 'o yarn squished onto it. Only have 4 boxes left to photograph, and that's tonight's task.

Awesome purpleness!

I checked your profile for your email address so I can send you the link I mentioned, but your email address doesn't appear. Hrm. Maybe you need to click something in your settings to turn that option on?
