Stash colours

Last night I decided that I wanted to knit a couple of sweaters for little girls so checked my inventory of yarn colours that I have.  Yes, I have a list of all the yarn that I own and it is rather large and my goal is to decrease it some this calendar year.

What I noticed was I really don't buy yarns that are good colours for little girls.  Most of my stash are various shades of, gray, blue, and some greens.  I seem to buy a lot of the quieter colours than bright ones.  If I do have some bright colours its normally just a 50 or 100 gram ball so not enough for a sweater.

The good thing is I noticed that Michaels have yarn on sale this week so maybe I should venture out and get some brighter colours of yarn.  The worst part of buying more yarn is my husband is going to tease me about it. (Just a minute isn't he the one that is driving me to the store so I can get it.)

Now I need to get my coupons ready and an idea of the colours that I want to look for and hopefully I won't come back with the normal colours.  What colours are in your stash, maybe time to look and see what colours you buy.

Better run before he leaves without me.

Lots of variegated, and one container each of green, red, blue and yellow, but five with the variegated ones. lol I'm thrilled that a Hobby Lobby store will be near Michaels and AC Moore in another month. Black and browns I don't have and I'm going to have to buy some grey this coming week for a poncho for my DH.
