Yep, hand still hurts, but that's ok, I have balls

Wow, hat sounded wrong. But it's true!

See, my hand still hurts which makes it difficult to knit on Tasha's socks, because the tiny needles just make it worse.

But that's ok, because my brand spanking new ball winder arrived in the mail yesterday!
I've been very busy winding all sorts of balls last night and today.

It has given me a very good excuse to sort through and re-organize my stash.
Now everything fits neatly into its drawers and I have a better idea of what I have. But then I don't exactly have a huge stash, I have the sock yarns I brought home from Rhinebeck, a few worsted yarns left over from last year's Rhinebeck still to find a suitable project, and a whole lot of partially used balls of random wool or wool/acrylic blends.

I also have a full drawer full or random worsted acrylic yarns. Most of which were half un-wound, so I spent a lot of time re winding the acrylics and deciding what would stay and what would go, since I hardly every use acrylic anymore. So I placed the few full skeins I had up on Ravely for trade or sell, and I'm not sure what I'll do with the rest.

I have also decided I really need to think of a stash busting project to use up all the partial skeins I have.

I'm not quite sure what to do yet, a lot of it is feltable, but not all of it, and I don't really think I have enough feltable yarn to make anything very big or interesting. Lots and lots of felted kitty toys? Well, Esme would be happy...

If you have any ideas let me know!

your stash is sounding pretty mush like mine. I have yet to figure out what to do with the acrylics either. Thankfully, I do not own a lot of feltable yarn. Wish I could help you more.
