HOLY COW! I want to come sleep in your yarn pile. I did not flash my stash because it gets in the way of my denial. If you part with any Yarntini - please keep me in mind:) Off to hug my yarn.

Holy Stash, Batman! Well, as you can imagine, this post didn't download all the pictures (silly dial-up)! And you know what - I bet my stash is at least 80% sock yarn too. But that's not really stash, is it? HA HA HA!
Good tip about the Irish Spring!

I've ogled your ravelry stash before, but to see it all in piles like that is something else. I envy you and I don't. I would buckle under the expectations of all that yarn. But I wish I had an inkling (well, really most!) of it.
