The “perfect sized” stash was a tough question for many of you to answer. Maybe these stash related questions will be easier:
1) What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”?
2) What yarn do you never want to be without?
Hmm…these are harder! Let’s see…
1) I don’t know! There are a ton of yarns I haven’t used/don’t have…but I can’t think of anything I’m lacking. The only way I can answer this is to say I wish I had more sweater-quantities of yarn in my stash. I know it doesn’t answer the question exactly, but I honestly can’t think of any particular brand/fiber/color/whatever that would be my Jerry Maguire.
2) Sock yarn. It works for socks, for fine projects, for baby clothes, for accessories, lace items…plus you can double it to get a different gauge. Give me a variety of fiber contents and I think I’ll be set for almost anything.

Having enough for a sweater is a real challenge isn’t it? It always seems greedy to buy that much yarn, especially if you don’t have a specific project in mind.

I feel exactly the same way. Something about spending 80-100$ on yarn for ONE project just freaks me out, but I don’t think twice about spending 30$ for a skein of sock yarn!
