I am a knitter. I was a knitter. I am a knitter. And before I started hoarding beads, I hoarded yarn - and still have the stash. While there is a very small, remote possibility that I may actually use all of the yarn, (kind of like last year, when I finally bought and made very easy felt applique stockings instead of believing that someday I would crossstitch stockings for the whole family)..... sometimes I get realistic - so I made a Yarn wreath and invited a friend to "shop Denise's Yarn Hoard" to make a wreath of her own. I may have to make more - very quick. Great bang for your buck (and time!). There is plenty of inspiration on Pinterest and Etsy for these too.
In the meantime, I also started a blanket that I bought the yarn form 3 years ago. An easy knit - with little thinking involved. I'm hoping to get it done while watching some of my favorite tv shows (like Hoarders - Ha!). Which mean it may take until next year before it gets done.
