According to Ravelry, my current pattern count is approaching 800. And this is my stash:
- three works in progress (5 skeins total)
- 8 skeins coming in five packages, from swaps and purchases made at midnight in a fog of grad school-induced anxiety
- three lots of roving and a spindle... even though I swore I'd never learn to spin as I already have too. much. yarn.
This, friends, is why a stashdown is absolutely necessary in these parts. I'm a relatively slow knitter and though I'm only in my third decade on earth, I fear I've already hit SABLE (stash acquisition beyond life expectancy).
The moral here: Grad School = Stressful. It was either a yarn binge or a chocolate binge, and I still maintain I made the right choice.
