I am checking out these funny little quotes in a book called Knitticisms and thought I would share them with you. These are all reasons to buy more yarn.

1.This color just might - someday - be discontinued.

2. Without all that yarn, my stock of knitting needles might get rusty.. There's nothing more embarrassing then rusty knitting needles.

3. you always need accent colors, and you always need main colors to accent.

4. Best to stock up now in case there's a shortage.

5. You don't have to cook it, dust it, scrub it or vacuum it. There's no time for housework anyway when you have knitting on your mind.

6. Yarn stashes insulate the house, you can never have enough insulation for when winter arrives.

7. It's illegal to steal it.

8. To support sheep ranchers. Farming and ranching are touch businesses and they need your help.

9. Just one more skein can't hurt. Never enough yarn. (My personal favorite).

10. You'll save gas buying bulk now, rather than driving back and forth to the shop again later because you know you'll buy it anyway.

11. It's less expensive than therapy.

12. Yarn's not fattening. Happiness is a skein of a low-fat cashmere blend.

Pictures of destash items

Team ESST - more goodies

I now have 3 etsy stores destashing my purchases of many years. My newest is crafting supplies, i.e., stamp pads, rubber stamps, embossing inks and powders, wire, postage stamps, and any other thing I might have thought I had the talent to create and found out differently.
check out if you are a crafter who likes well priced items of great variety.

You still can find my novelty yarns on and I am trying to keep at least 100 of a good variety listed, but people keep buying them and I'm definitely not complaining.

Even my beads and vintage buttons destash at is taking off now. I have to admit it is fun to sell things and send them off to a good home.

All my crafty and knitty friends, mucho bargains to be had.
