Must... Stop... Buying... Yarn...

I decided to do a spring clean of my yarn stash as my wool chest had started to look like a big bowl of multi-coloured, multi-textured spaghetti. I emptied my chest: Look all wooden!I turned round to see...

My sofa had disappeared!
I set to it, putting all the yarn back in in neat little balls, organised roughly by shade and thickness cursing my quite apparent addiction. When I saw my neat yarn stash all balled up and pretty I decided enough was enough. I am now on a temporary yarn purchasing ban.
Of course the 5 balls I bought before I tidied my stash don't count. I mean they were only 50p a ball so how could they?It's been 2 days since I tidied my yarn stash and I've only been to the wool shop once. And I only bought a bag of stuffing which I really did need as I had absolutely none left. So all in all I'm doing quite well.

My name is Loo and I am a yarnoholic. Realising it is the first step.

(please note pictures do not include massive box full of embroidery thread and bag full of various coloured plastic bag yarns I set about creating mid last year)

Ha Ha, Love your wooden box, and absolutely adore the brass headed cane holding the lid up. What are you going to make with all your neatly wound balls of yarn?

Thanks, the cane belongs to my other half's stepdad. It's somehow come to live with us! I'm really not sure what to make with it all - I need to start pattern searching!
