A few weeks ago, one of my knitting groups had a stash swap, which is both dangerous and awesome.  Dangerous, because there's a more than zero chance that you will leave the same amount of yarn you brought - or possibly even more.  Awesome, because you can trade or sell yarn that you're not super excited about to someone else who really likes it.

The verdict?  I left with 8 fewer skeins of old yarn, and 7 more skeins of new-to-me yarn.  Not too bad - but didn't exactly make the stash smaller.... hahah.


The five skeins above were either bought or traded, but these two skeins are a little special - a friend in the group had seen on the blog that I love pink and laceweight yarn, and gave me these two skeins of gorgeous pink Knit Picks merino laceweight from her stash.  It was super sweet of her!  I will have to find an appropriately awesome shawl to make out of it.
