She's an average knitter I think. I followed a link off Rav to her sale :)

Oh, and LIzzie, I totally knew you were mostly tongue in cheek :D (as was I - you're welcome to come pet my stash as long as I can pat you down before you leave!)

:smt044 :rotfl: :smt005

Just what I needed to brighten up my day. I had to disconnect from the ample stash for fear of using our entire month of broadband allowance :rotfl:

My puny little stash is nothing :wink: I still don't know how people find the time to load their stash onto Ravelry or maybe they have less yarn than me.

I do mine when I get the yarn, helps that I like taking photos though.

I keep getting behind on my stash listing, but I think I have 85% of mine on Rav, mostly so I can remember what I have. I destash often to keep to approx 100 lots.

funny to read this thread ... today i did have a look on tm to see if it was worth listing wool there (decided better to list here at less and not have fees and hassle) and saw cnrstone had purchased all that vp ... wow ... not sure I want to look at her stash but yeah must have a nice budget for wool ... mind you pre children I managed to spend way more than I should have and my storage is currently in attic ... but really needs to be cleared to be used for our business stuff - hence my wee sell offs!!

I don't have any of my stash on there!!!

I have to say, I do get a bit annoyed/sad at some of the Facebook yarny buyers. Not their fault, their budget is their budget and mine is mine but when you see the same people buying lots and snagging the one you were after, I do get a bit :gaah:

But most of the time I'm probably then relieved after as it's not like (to me, with not a massive stash) I need more wool. I just need more time to knit what I already have!

My stash is quite teeny now and all listed on Rav, as long as I take pics and list yarn as soon as it arrives then i find it really useful to have it all on there :)

New house has a 4th bedroom, if i get my way it will NOT have a spare bed for DP's parents... it will have sewing and knitting and dyeing related stuff... a whole room 8-[ that might be the thing I'm most excited about when we move :lol:

I used to get annoyed when I miss out on RRHY and the like, but then realised that you can normally just place a custom order for the same price anyway :wink:

When I came across VP many years ago she had stock sitting there not moving :lol: I had the pick of about 5 colours with many in stock :lol: along come rav and she is sold out all the time.I note some of those yarns are sock club yarn she is selling too ;) Morag does customs but I think you have to buy 3 skeins.
