Rachel's Photo (SABLE - Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy)

Rachel has entered our competition and submitted the wonderful photo below as an illustration of SABLE (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy). Thank you, Rachel! Look at all that lovely yarn and, apparently, this is only some of what Rachel has!

This big time stash came to light when Rachel decided to separate the yarn she thought she might use in the short term from that which she has plans for in the longer term. She is now extending her yarn storage into the loft. She points out, however, that she can't yet compete with people who, having exhausted all other storage possibilities, have resorted to using the freezer! Are you one of those people? If so, why not get out your camera and share with us.

Thanks also to Beverley for providing the Yarn Forward's Knitting Tensions/Gauge link which differentiates between the different thicknesses of yarn and their relative gauges as well as comparing the US/Australian/New Zealand terminologies where they differ. Information like this is always useful so I've also added this link to the Knitspeak sidebar.
