Yarn is falling out of everywhere

I feel like I should write this in the language of knitting, so my family won't understand what I'm writing, but I have to say, it's happening again. I am finding an embarrassment of yarn, as we switch bedrooms. I don't know where to put it all.

I took a picture of my "storage unit" but then decided it was too messy to post. I even deleted it from the camera. There is not a picture with this blog; having a picture of all the yarn would be like those news stories of the families who haven't cleaned in a couple months and the children are removed by the authorities to live with relatives.

As I took my sweaters off the shelves to put on the new closet shelves, I found bags of yarn that I remember buying, but had forgotten I have - the skeins of yarn I bought in Forest Park to knit a baby sweater. Then there is the bag hanging on the hook which contains the rambling rows afghan which will always be a longterm project. I easily secreted the bag of sock projects and yarn that has been hanging on the doorknob in the sock yarn bin. But taking the soft-sided luggage off the bin, I found a lot bag of yarn - you know, the plastic bag of yarn that holds the industry standard lot of yarn? I am relieved that this is a lot of 8 (not 12). I bought the yarn for the aran sweater that I swear I WILL do.

We have 3 lockers in the basement. I could put the yarn in the basement. But I think my immunization has to be to see the piles of yet-to-be-knitted yarn so I am not tempted to buy more. And I can't claim the skeins of yarn are really kittens because we have too many of the purring, shedding critters as well.

But did I mention that I am online watching my auctions of sportsweight Lion Brand yarn? I want the contrasting colors to use with the purple that I already have.
