Look at all the yarn!
The last four years I think, I have aranged a yarn swap at my house in January. Bring yarn you would like to swap, we knit, talk and swap yarn. In the beginning the pile of yarn was modest, but I have to say that has changed a bit. Today the whole living room table was packed with yarn. A lot of goodies, but I had decided to not swap that much. I ended up with a skein of old Wollmeise in the color way Sultan. Notice the tag. This skein was bought before Wollmeise got as big as it is today. I think it has been at least two different tags after this one. I also ended up with a skein of Posh yarn in the color way Burlesque. So far, so good. I served my guests soup and buns, tea and coffee. Some of the guests even brought cake. The problem always starts when the guests leave. It's always a fair amount of yarn not being swapped. It's a big risk for the yarn diet hosting a yarn swap. Yarn could easily end up the weirdest places. Today was no exception. I thought I had gotten away with only three skeins of yarn, and I was able to give them away to another guest before she left. When all the guests had left and I started to tidy, it all started. I found a bag of yarn hidden in the washing machine, another bag in the laundry basket. In the kitchen I found a skein in the kitchen drawer and a bag in the kitchen cabinet. And it didn't stop with that, another bag was in the wardrobe. What can you say?! I already gave away one bag, and I think I can give away the rest of the yarn too. Just wait for it, nobody is safe!
