Do I have too much yarn?

Yesterday was 100 Day at the kid's school.

The primary grades celebrate the 100th day of classes by having fun activities involving the number 100. It's a way of making math concepts fun and making the otherwise dreary winter days of February a bit more exciting. One of the assignments they have to complete at home before 100 Day is to bring in a collection of 100 somethings.

M asked if he could bring in 100 snippets of yarn. "It's ok if you don't have 100 different balls to snip from, I don't mind having some repeated," he said. We had sort of forgotten until he woke up that he had to bring the project to school, so while he got ready for school, I began snipping. He put it all together with time to spare.

I guess I must have been in denial about the size of my stash. I never really thought I had that much yarn, but I was able to sit on the couch and snip 100 bits of yarn off different balls and skeins without leaving the couch. After M had left for school, I noticed that I hadn't even touched the stash in the laundry closet.

It really does beg the question, "Do I have too much yarn?"

never!! You can never have too much yarn!!

I think the only exception to this is if someone in your family has suffered a serious stash-related injury or death.

I must admit I'm a bit envious of such a large stash. That's pretty epic.

no family members or pets were harmed in the making of my stash!

In my opinion, one can never have too much yarn. I'm sure I have well over 100 different skeins...and then there's the quilting fabric stash...ahem....let's not go there. LOL
