    Well, you’ve certainly made me feel a lot better about my stash! If Mr Josiekitten ever comments on the amount of yarn I have, I shall show him this post! LOL I think you’ve accumulated KSH like I have sock yarn!

    This is such great therapy! My meagre 9 balls (that were bought for half price in a John Lewis sale), look very, very paltry by comparison. I’m beginning to feel good about myself!! LOL. Mind you, I have to admit to ALWAYS going straight to, and touching, the KSH whenever I am in JL. The colours are sooo gorgeous and it is oh so soft. Thanks for the on-line remote counselling. I’m feeling geat! (my stash is sooo much smaller than yours…………, which means it’s OK to go ahead and buy the lovely Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend that I have my eye on.

    You even shocked me, & I guessed a very generous figure in the mid-forties!

    If there’s ever a worlwide shortage of Kid Mohair, you could keep quite a few people going from your stash alone 🙂

    Congratulations, that is a real stash achievement that lightweight stashers like myself can only dream of!

    Well if you really want to cut down on your enormous stash you could always donate it to impoverished knitters who only have 3 balls of Kidsilk – and yes you read right, I ONLY have 3 balls. So if ever you feel like a clear out you know where to go – (stands whistling in the corner looking innocent.)

    Ooooh, I am so jealous. I could just dive in to that box!
    BTW, where is the lacy top pattern from? It’s lovely.

    Hi Sarah,

    I tried looking on your site to contact you personally, but what the hell… I’m writing a blog review for Knitting Magazine at GMC publications and wanted to write one on you and Damn, Knit & Blast It if possible? I would need to accompany the review with some of your pictures, would this be possible?

    Please contact me by e-mail.

    Hi Susan

    I cannot believe you have so much – that’s not far off what I have – and I own an online shop selling the yarn!! I don’t have any of this in my own stash, but after reading your blog feel honour bound to add some!

    I’ve just stumbled upon your blog through google, cracksilk haze is about the most hilarious thing I have ever heard in knitting circles – I’ve only just started with it, I better quit while I am ahead judging by your stash! Thanks, your blog is a fab read!

    Oh my goodness, that is a lot of Kidsilk!

    Maybe you could try some patterns that use it doubled? I’ve made a jumper and a cardigan with KS doubled and I’ve worn them both a zillion times.

    You can always try selling/trading on Ravelry… 🙂 I frequently check there for yarn if I only need a few balls of a color (IE: Like the Eveleen project)

    Oh my God! I am so jealous! And I thought my stash habit was bad .. but now you’ve set me off on a mission to out-do yours. I know, I am a sick woman. If you ever consider selling any of your KSH, please contact me – always up for a bargain that will probably never get knitted up 😉

    I am afraid I too am a kidsilk Haze addict. I bought 10 balls of the Daffodil Yellow with the intention of knitting a shetland shawl. I can’t bear to see it knit up….so I bought several balls of kidsilk in other colours…just incase…I decide to knit with them. It really is a beautiful yarn

    Jaw drops! I’m such a Cracksilk noOb — let’s see, one ball knitted, 3 coming from Germany to complete that UFO (I only needed 1, but why not stash up right?!), 7 KSSpray in stash; 1.5 Majestic, 2 Mist, 13 Killer Red on its merry postal way. Meh, noOb! Only 27 balls?!?

    Ahem, excuse me a moment whilst I find a private place to be alone with that photo of your KSH stash…
