Yarn Pop!

A bit over a year ago, I won some Yarn Pop Bags on a Facebook giveaway they held. I’d admired these bags for awhile. Made in the USA, they have some really nice features, like a light interior so you can see into the bag, big zippers that don’t get kinked, and really fun fabrics. I was thrilled to receive my bags (they no longer have the blue design on mine).


So when they put a call out on Instagram  to see if anyone would like to do  a fun video or two showcasing what we use the bags for, I thought, “Cool! A bit of cross promotion and I get to see if videos are a place I want to be.”

Here are some of the unedited videos. I’ll put the final edit that Yarn Pop made in another post.

Flash your Stash

I’ve seen several threads on Ravelry talking about “Flash Your Stash.” Showing both the yarn you have and how you store it. While I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by my stash a bit, I realized I don’t really have that much. The left photo is my sock yarn & sock yarn leftovers in the corner cabinet, the bag on top is my precious YOTH from the Never Not Knitting Store. I did get to add a couple of full skeins thanks to a friend. Though at least one has been earmarked for a hat.

The right picture is a 5 gallon rubbermaid tub that holds my leftover bits of other weights.

And the bottom right is a sweater’s worth of yarn that has been naughty and is in time out.

I do have to admit there is one more tub. But I don’t count it as my stash. It’s someone else’s stash that she’s no longer using so I gave it a home. That’s not real stash, right?

The husband and I were debating a lovely storage shelf. Something akin to the X cross wine storage you see. But my stash is mostly made up of odds and ends rather than beautiful whole skeins, hanks, or cakes. I’m not sure it’ll work. For now, this’ll do. And I’ll continue thinking on better storage.
