I just came across this great article about the value of going through your stash. It's a wonderful read and makes me feel totally good about the time I've spent pondering mine. The only aspect I haven't mastered yet is parting with some of it. I really should be brave and move on to the "Happy" and "Unhappy" division of the stash, but I'm not quite ready for that yet. I think I'm afraid that I'll just have to go out and replace it. (With something wonderful, ofcourse!)
In the meantime, I think I'll continue cataloguing rather than busting my pile and see where that adventure takes me. Hopefully I'll discover more 'smiley' than 'grumpy' yarn anyway.
