main_yarn_room1

Whether you’re a person who loves to stash yarn, or a crafter who buys only on a per-project basis, this episode will interest you. We speak to Hannah Fettig of Knitbot, about her app and booklet called “Stashbot”, helping knitters understand yarn quantities for each project they’re planning. We also speak with Elizabeth, whose stash is so big that it’s taking over whole rooms of her house (see her “Main Yarn Room” above)! Find out what she loves about owning a large stash, how she uses it, and how she keeps it organized.

    That stash is larger than my local yarn store! (And probably better organized!)

    What a wonderful podcast! I need to check out the Stash Bot app as I have a random collection of impulsive LYS shopping yarn, lol. What a clever & thoughtful app creation. 🙂

    As for that yarn stash, WOW!! I’ll admit I’m thoroughly jealous! If I had a dream home in mind, it would have 4 rooms dedicated to yarn. That is truly & shamelessly admirable.
    My DH is an artist & avid bookworm. His two huge collections are mainly books (from literature to philosophy) & – interestingly – artistically designed tarot decks. Many of my stash busting projects are tarot pouches for his collection. I’ve knit more pouches than socks, lol.
    As for my yarn stash, it’s large for a pair of city slickers living in a small apartment. I have a beach bag full of UFO’s, a basket of Soon-to-Be-Knit(or-Crocheted)-Yarn, a bucket of the Waiting List in our closet, & the skeins here & there who sprout legs & wander our home. :p

    I guess stash diving is the best thing about this beautifully and lovingly curated stash. i admire and envy the organization.

    Holy cow, I love this woman! She makes me feel less extreme! I also shop my stash. Getting all my yarn entered into Ravelry is one of my goals for this year. My yarn is also sorted by weight, but alas, it is not otherwise organized…yet!

    I also appreciated Hannah Fettig’s comment about yarn having an emotional component. So true!

    She sounds like a lovely woman and I appreciate the fact that she shared her pictures but the volume of yarn should be on an episode of Hoarders.

      Rude. Not at all – it’s beautiful, organized, and obviously one of her passions.

    I thought I had a lot of yarn. More yarn than I can ever hope to use in my lifetime.
