That's the only way I can describe how overwhelming the weaving yarns look in the studio.
Click on the photos to get a better perspective !
It took days of organizing the yarns and a new tree order went in yesterday for 3 more, to hold the machine knitting yarns (that I had to steal to complete this) in the storage room.
I don't think I'll need to order any yarn for at least a few months!
I can only imagine when they have my "dead lady sale", what people will say as they wander in the studio with their mouths agape!

And now the wool crepe (2 right rows) and rayon boucle (everything between the table legs) come out of the bags and get inventoried! Does anyone out there have some ideas as to what I could be weaving with these?
This is a continuation from the yarn sale I went to.

Today, I pulled the chenille out of the bags to see exactly what I brought home. this photo is showing 120 cones of chenille.
The cotton is somewhat organized - awaiting the arrival of the 7 yarn trees. (I ordered another one while writing out the check this am)
I'm not sure how much chenille is enough - but I'm pretty sure I've hit that mark!

We left the house at 5:00am this morning and returned home at 6pm. We worked in the studio until 8:30 pm when we finally got blurry eyed and gave up!
So, this was the first time we ever used a trailer to haul yarn home. Granted we had a pickup truck pretty jammed full when we went to Great Northern Weaving last year - but this time a truck and a trailer were filled. I also purchased some table looms and weaving equipment!
As best as we could count while bagging the yarn - I believe we have 680 cones of weaving yarns. Silk, wool, chenille and cotton filled these bags.
So this is what 375 cones of 3/2, 5/2, 8/2, 10/2, 12/2 and 20/2 cotton look like.
I had to order 6 more yarn trees which will be here hopefully next week.
We didn't even attempt the other bags of yarn tonight - we were a bit overwhelmed! I just kept saying "Holy Crap Batman" as we tried to organize the yarn into sizes.
