    I wind them into cakes then put them on a peg board so I can see what I have. Granted I think I need a bigger peg board already!

    My new years resolution last year was to no longer have a stash (I lost all my stuff in boiler explosion where it was in storage). So I decided I would only buy exactly what I needed to make a particular project. I saved so much money and was able to finish everything I began. I’m doing it again this year. The storage accident was actually my second stash that was destroyed. I lost the first to carpet beetles at my mom’s brand new townhouse (I told her to sue the builder). I haven’t had much luck with collections of things. So I am now living with much much less.

      This is a great idea Emily. I’m mainly a quilter but also crochet and knit regularly. New projects are always a distraction but since I retired last year I’ve resolved to use my yarn and fabric stash without buying any new unless it’s absolutely necessary. Many WIP are in the queue to be finished but I’m so enjoying the process.

    MY LATEST VIDEOS We actually completely finished crocheting our shiba inu but then experienced a setback: we found out that Vanna’s Complement Yarn has been discontinued, and it is nearly impossible to get a hold of the “Fisherman” colour that we used!   I know that many people like using the exact same yarn I used, so we decided to try and crochet the same dog we had just designed (following the pattern I had written down) with another fuzzy worsted weight yarn that is NOT discontinued: New Basic 175 in “Cream”!   This yarn is a wool blend as it is 25% wool and 75% acrylic! This yarn fuzzes up very well with a dog slicker brush (even better than Vanna’s Complement, probably due to the wool component) as you can see in the picture below!   Ryan brushed the fibers in all different directions to draw them out with the wires of the brush, being careful not to fuzz up the working yarn.
