I've started an inventory of my stash and I'm finding it extremely useful. I've logged the recommended SPI, yardage, dyelot numbers and location of the yarn and it means that if I get the sudden urge to do a project I can check the inventory, find a yarn that matches the criteria and I know exactly where to look for it. I'm doing it in Excel which gives me the ability to sort and filter.

This inventory taking is a lot of work but I'm already finding the results useful.


29 pairs of socks?! Oooooh, Leslie...


I really should flash my stash some day - no one else would feel bad about theirs ever again. I have excel inventories for yarn and needles and it helps a lot. Think of yourself as a painter. Could you really go without a palette of colors at your disposal?


All I can say is...I am glad I am not the only one! I can so relate.


If you really want to be scared you should go check out Lime & Violets sock marathon. I had some ungodly amount of yardage once it was all said and done, 15+ miles of yarn. That was humbling. Not that it has stopped me from buying but it did start my organizing. I have catalogued it all by brand, then style and number of balls including yardage per ball and gauge. whew! Good luck and let us know when you do list it!! ;o)
