Do you purchase yarns for their beauty and color, or maybe for the unique texture? Have you bought yarns that were rare, or extremely unique? Do you have a stash of yarns waiting for that next project, the project you havenâ€™t found yet? Do you have more supplies than you can ever use? Maybe then, it is a Collection and not a Stash.
Kate Antonova explains this very well in her article â€œItâ€™s not a stash. . . itâ€™s a Collectionâ€. Kate explains that when we have so much yarn in our stash that we can never use itâ€™s time to no longer thing of it as a stash, but a collection. If you have one-of-a-kind hand painted yarns, how could you possibly change the skeins from their precious state into an article that would deserve this yarn?
Ms. Antonova goes on to describe several categories of yarn, such as Ambition Yarns â€“ donâ€™t we all have those, Bathing Yarns, Shame Yarns and the Best Friend Yarns.
