That's not too much, I think, until I admit that I have other yarn. Since I've got my knitting room, I've looked at almost all the yarn I own. Yarn for sweaters, about 7,500 yards. Yarn for afghans, around 5,500 yards. Plus the bag of yarn I need to take to Goodwill, and the box of yarn I plan to take to the swap this summer. None of which counts the yarn for the projects I'm currently knitting, but all of which is detailed in my spreadsheet (which you can see by clicking the link to My Stash in the sidebar). In other words, I'm organized, but I still have more yarn than before I started going through the stash. So I'm very glad I don't have more yarn coming to me. I suppose.
I'm also glad that I've completed my final, truly the last, Christmas present for 2007. The recipient of this one went away for Christmas and just got home last week, so I had extra time, and I took it. Now they are done, and the hat and neckwarmer will be mailed today.
In the meantime, I've been wandering around Ravelry, searching for nice sweaters and such. For those who don't have the time or access to do the same, here are some nice photos I've found:
There's the intriguing gap scarf, with much discussion on how one would knit it. I found this one fairly quickly after it was posted. I usually miss out on the good patterns, like the Cloud Bolero
and the Mustard Cloud Bolero, and a longer cloud bolero.
I also think this is Quite the Jacket, although it had to go through multiple feltings to get there.
I have tried to find links to these that don't lead to Ravelry. That way, they are accessible to everyone, not just to Ravelry users. Of course, the photos are in Flickr. One thing I found interesting to do is to look at a user's photos in Flickr, using the slideshow option. Not a lot of info, but lovely photos of knitting. Here's two:
(She's a designer, so some of these patterns are for sale.)
Have fun getting lost in the photos!
