I don't have a large stash; there are a number of reasons for that. I don't have a yarn shop close by where I can go to make impulsive yarn purchases. I almost always want to have a project in mind before I spend the money. When I do buy yarn I use it right away. I think I might change that today and go to Elaine's Yarn in Davison. I figure it costs about $8.00 to drive there and back--about the same as shipping charges.
