I recently had the chance to visit my second yarn stash in the located in the next state over. I would never wish such an arrangement on any knitter, but for me this arrangement is working out. The upside to having yarn in two different states is that absence really makes the heart grow fonder.
I had forgotten what beautiful yarns I own. There is a bag of seven skeins of wool waiting to be made into a blanket. I have enough yarn left over from my last Harry Potter scarf project to make another one. And the amount of colorful acrylics staring up at me when I look into the stash is enough to make a young knitter blush.
As much as I would like to pack it all up and have this stash join its friends the next state over, I can only take a few balls of yarn with me for now. My stashes are separated for a good reason- though that doesn’t help the sadness that I feel when I have to leave one of my stashes behind.
Hopefully, some day in the near future, my two stashes will be reunited. But until then, I will continue to be the traveling knitter, living my life between two states- and two stashes.
