2. I have A LOT of yarn
Around this same time, I read Stitched Together's blog post and about challenging herself to knit her stash and I was inspired.

I am not vowing not to buy new yarn or not take on projects outside the stash (especially since two of my lovely Christmas gifts were a membership in Tanis Fiber Arts Colour Club and a gift certificate to my LYS - yippee!). I'm just planning to "shop the stash" first and have a have a little fun with it along the way!
This is how my crafty area looked when I was finished. Ahh bliss : )
Now time for a cup of tea!
