534,559.5

Okay, I know I have been missing in action lately from updating the blog, but I’ve been busy.

This is why. 534,559.5 yards of yarn. That’s right. That’s about 101.2 miles of yarn. Wait a minute, that's not right, it's 303 miles of yarn! I’m not sure if that is all of it, as a matter of fact, I know it’s not, because there are miscellaneous balls without labels, and some kits that I just didn’t want to figure out the yardage, and then there is the yarn on the cones that I have no idea what the yardage is. But that, my friends, is what Ravelry tells me I have in the yarn room.

Okay, let’s all say it together, Holy Crap! I can also think of other words not suitable for print. Whoa!

But, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be. I didn’t hit 1,000 yarn items. I think I stopped at 788. And, now I have a great spreadsheet so I know what I have. And, I know people who have more than I do (thank goodness!) Okay, I'm adding this later in the day. At lunch time, after talking with Kris and Robin, I realized that I missed entering about 5,000 more yards of Skaska lace weight and Angora Cottage yarn. It keeps growing, and growing....

Yep. That’s a whole lot a yarn. I had better get knitting! One skein at a time...

OH Girlfriend, it just keeps growing. You know it is like getting pregnant, you know how it happened.

According to your blog counter retirement is coming soon - you better get more yarn, just to be sure you have enough to see you through! ;-)

I'm betting that there really is a whole lot more!!

I haven't been brave enough (yet) to inventory my yarn. One day...perhaps.
