Sharon,

I have the Seville jacket pattern, but haven't gotten around to knitting it yet. Seeing how pretty yours turned out, I think it may move up my "one-day" list!

I also agree with your idea about our stashes. We do need to drag them out into the light. I have bookcases all over my house, filled with a (small) portion of my book collection. I need to find a similar way of displaying my yarn collection. As of today, I am forever avoiding the term "stash" for my yarn holdings. It's a collection, not a stash!

I have such a small stash now, but considering that I've not knit in nearly a year -- it's bigger than it needs to be. However, I cannot imagine parting with the bit that I have now. I know I will use it "one day". LOL!

I hope you are well.

Sharon,

Thanks for the mention! And I really agree with your ideas about stash vs. collection. I mentioned you on my blog yesterday, and I stated that I'm not using stash to describe my yarn collection any more.

Yesterday, the temps in my area hit 115, but were down about 20 degrees today. Cloud cover saved us from another scorching day. It's still too hot to knit, but at least now that it's in the high 90s, we are able to move, rather than hiding indoors and (in my a/c-less apartment) wishing I was in Canada or some other really cold place.

Great idea! My collection would have to be in glass-front cabinets though, or it would become cat toys! I think this an idea that Ikea could grab onto...

Hear, hear!!! I am in total agreement with your post. I reached the SABLE stash quite a while ago, and I consider myself a yarn collector as well as a knitter. AND I love knitting from my collection these days.
