Flash Your Stash 2007

I must start off with an apology. I've been sick for the past 5 days and couldn't give this year's FYS day the attention that's due such a very special event. It's almost a national Knitty holiday and y'all know how much I love "posing" my yarn. I wasn't even going to participate but at the last minute (It would be like missing out on the Prom)I made this half assed attempt:

If you were to come visit, I'd put you up in my guest room:


And if you were homesick, you could snuggle with some fiber and a loaner kitty:

Mika looks unimpressed with this meager offering


I seem to have a penchant for buying a sweater's worth of yarn in red hues and then doing nothing about it:

Artfiber's Kyoto, Malabrigo and Karabella Aurora 8

Mound 'O yarn (ooh look Elsbeth Lavold! Colinette! Rowan Tapesty! Dale of Norway! Noro! and a cone of Zephyr!):

I also seem to like buying sock yarn (the sad truth is I have more stuffed in odd drawers and baskets):
Just wait'll next year!!

I collect sock yarn too and really need to get to knitting some socks. I really love your guest bedroom - it looks very warm and inviting!

Hope you are feeling better now. Still a very nice flash ;-)

"Sad truth" oh speak it woman. You and me can hang out on a desert island knitting socks together and not run out of yarn for at least what, 5 years? 10?

lovely stash! I know what you mean, I'm still sick and trying to convince myself to get off my arse and go take some pictures.

I'd stay in that guest room...you'd never get rid of me! Beautiful yarn!

Is the loaner cat allowed to watch as I roll around in your stash if I come to visit?
Hope you feel better!

You'd have to evict me from your guest room. I love that bed. The whole room looks so snuggly and throw in a bonus kitty cat and I'm a permanent "guest". LOL!

I'm glad you are back among the Knitty and decided to flash us! ;)

Pretty Pretty Fiber!

What a perfect idea for a bed and breakfast. A yarn themed room with a loaner kitty! I want reservations now.

Yeah, I want reservations too! Ahh to sleep amongst the fiber! You might have to check my bags when I leave though..all that red!! ;)

You made a better effort than I did - and I'm sick too. Here's to a speedy recovery for both of us!
