I would like to introduce you to...

My ADDICTION! I realize that I may need help, but the good thing is that I recognize this fact and am willing to accept it and work with it...
So, I have been crocheting for a while now. I have started, gone hard, then stopped cold, sometimes for YEARS...then I'll pick it up again and on goes the cycle. So, as I have wandered through this world, STUMBLING upon sales here and there, stores closing their doors resulting in BLOWOUT prices, what, I ask you is a girl (who is apparently addicted to yarn) supposed to do?? Just walk by and pretend that I didn't see that cotton on for $1 a ball, or some baby yarn that would be PERFECT for "something" later?? No no my friends, I have been BUYING it...for years!

As a result I would like you to see first hand what kind of situation we (or I) am dealing with...

Please meet THE STASH (3/4 of it anyway...the rest I have to dig out)

I know right??? Those see through under the bed containers are 39.5 x 29.25 inches big and 7.5 inches deep, I have an entire rubbermaid upstairs still full of more BIG skeins of yarn and yes folks, that wicker laundry basket is FULL!!

Now, what I am going to do with all of this you might be asking yourself?? I definitely don't have a shortage of items that I want to crochet or a shortage of the yarn to complete them with, it's simply a matter of trying to figure out where to start!

Here's the deal...I've kind of developed a challenge for myself. I am going to TRY my best to use up all of this yarn INSTEAD of going out and getting more. If I do go out and buy anymore then I have to use up the same amount of balls when I get home!

First up...I will be starting my next project with these guys...

They will be a big checkerboard for my kids to play CUTE!

Let the games begin...Have a great night!
