Stash-buster challenge: My yarn stash.



Jeg tenkte jeg skulle vise garnlageret mitt til stash-buster utfordringen, for å dokumentere hva jeg har lagret opp av garn hjemme og hva jeg har å velge blant til mine fremtidige prosjekter i denne utfordringen.
Jeg elsker å kjøpe garn, og ettersom jeg ikke er noen rask strikker/hekler har det lagret seg opp med garn. Av alt garn som finnes er ullgarn favoritten min :)
Nå har jeg gitt meg selv kjøpeforbud av garn ut året, med unntak av det jeg trenger til plantefarging.


For the Stash-buster challenge I thought I would post some photos of my yarn stash, to document what it contains, and what I have to choose from for my knit and crochet project for this challenge.
I love to buy yarn, and as I am a rather slow knitter/crocheter my yarn stash has just kept growing.
Wool is my favourite out of all yarns :)
Now I have decided not to purchase any more yarn in 2013, with the exception of what I will need for natural dyes in summer.



Garnlageret mitt består av åtte kasser (+), og nøyaktig mengde aner jeg ikke, men det er mange kilo garn.
Og hva finnes i kassene?


My yarn stash fills eight boxes (+), and I do not know the exact amount of yarn in there, but there are several kilos.
And what's in the boxes?



Fire av kassene inneholder plantefarget ullgarn, det er vanlig ullgarn og superwashgarn.

Four of the boxes contain my own naturally dyed wool yarn.



To kasser med kjøpegarn av ymse slag, det meste er ullgarn av forskjellig kvalitet, pluss en del sokkegarn.
I kurven er det babyullgarn, samt noen nøster garn som skal strikkes mønstrede votter av.


These two boxes are filled with different kinds of yarns, mostly wool, and some sock yarn.
In the basket there is baby wool yarn, and some balls of wool from which I plan to knit mittens.




I den store boksen er ullgarn jeg kjøpte på ferie i Latvia i sommer. De hvite garnhespene i posen er alpakkagarn.
I kassa til høyre ligger alt bomullsgarnet mitt og noen få nøster av et flerfarget akrylgarn.
...så jeg har mer enn nok å ta av...  :-)


The large box contain wool yarn bought on holiday in Latvia last summer. The white skeins in the plastic bag are alpacca wool.
In the box to the right are balls of cotton yarn, and some balls of multicoloured acryllic yarn.
...so there is lots of yarn to bust here...  :-)



Nye prosjekter som er påstartet:

Newly started projects:

Spiralsokker. 
De er raske å strikke, men litt kjedelig, så jeg har begynt på et sitteunderlag også slik at jeg kan veksle litt.
Sitteunderlaget strikkes i dobbel tråd, det skal få stripemønster i koksgrått og grønt, og det skal toves.


Spiral socks.
Those are quick to knit, but a little bit boring, so I have also started to knit a sitting mat. Now I can switch a little between the two projects.
The sitting mat is knitted in two stands of yarn and will have a stripy pattern. When finished it will be felted.

Thank you, Elizabeth :) Those boxes are great to store yarn in. I like that they are see through and that they close tightly to store the wool well :)
