Going Dark

I've got a lot to work on this weekend, so there won't be much coming out of this small sliver of the Blogoverse this weekend.

I will return April 1st.

On April 1st I'll be announcing the winner of March's K.A.Y.E. drawing (you still have time to enter if you qualify this month--click the link for details!).
And on April 1st I will be flashing my stash.

Now I know Ravelry and even that silly Yarn Harlot* (in an indirect Canadian-exclusive way) are doing their part to quash Flash Your Stash Day, but I refuse to submit to not participating.

There's just too much good fodder for me to pass up in not participating in April 1st's Flash Your Stash Day.

I won't lie. I'll miss seeing other people's stashes on their blogs and some of the creative ways they come up with to display it. Clicking on little boxes in Ravelry isn't quite the same.

*Ok, I won't lie, I do occasionally get bored at work and click over to read the Yarn Harlot. It's good for a laugh. I quite enjoyed the drawn out story of her taking an 8 mile walk for beer and TP. Honey, try taking an 8 mile walk 9 months pregnant because you've got a craving for a can of fruit cocktail and you're six days overdue with said child and you think (wrongly) that walking will induce labor. Beer and toilet paper--pish! Lightweight!

YH is anti-FYS? Really? That's just weird. I know she doesn't participate, but I didn't realize she was actively trying to get rid of it.

And I agree - I enjoy FYS. I'm just sitting this one out due to timing issues.

Looking forward to yours for sure!!!

Boy! Am I glad that April 1st isn't flash your stash for Quilters!!!!! It might take months...YEARS to see all of a Quilter's stash!!! I LOVE your flashing of your stash...but I might just be prejudice....You do it so creatively! Hummmmm...what will the plot be this year? Can't wait to see it. Love, Mom

I didn't know there was a flashyourstashbacklash!

I need to know more about the flashyourstashbacklash as well.

Being as I don't read the Harlot and I don't belong to Ravelry and don't plan to.

And organizing my stash would be...well, practical and certainly necessary, but soooo time consuming! I could be knitting and buying more yarn!

I didn't know there was a flash your stash day. Interesting. I don't know that I could do it without hubby's eyes bugging out from seeing it all spread out.

Flash your stash eh? I'm not very creative. Maybe I can come up with something. Maybe not, I'll be working dureing daylight hours. Crap....

Now you're making me feel guilty about passing on FYS this year. Although, if Saint YH is against it, maybe that's incentive enough to go ahead with it!

Hehe..I saw the R word too! I look totally forward to your FYS!! I don't do it anymore, once was enough and I'm not as witting and creative as you! Only 3 more days....

Bezzie, you crack me up all the time, thanks!

And I am really glad to have found a kindred soul who also does not appreciate the YH's "humor".

Thinking of you lots these days.

I'm flashing, though it's not too creative. I can't do anything cooler than yarn angels or taking a bath in my stash.

I'm sorry, but there is no way in hell I would walk 8 miles for beer or any alcoholic beverage.

TP and actual food? It would take some serious thinking on my part, but those are necessities.

I never do FYS...because I am a lazy woman. Your FYS is always funny, and Trillians is always cool.

I just managed to contain my stash. Flashing it? Depends how busy it is here Monday... Maybe I'll dump it all out somewhere..... Can't wait to see yours though!

I think trying to stop something so fun is silly. Maybe the squasher's stash is not as big as she has proclaimed? Huh? Maybe there's not a lifetime supply of all things long and wooly in that house? Or maybe it's *gasp* acrylic!


Oh and if I had to walk 8 miles for TP, I would have pooped in the bushes and used a leaf by then, thanks.

I never knew that Flash Your Stash was a thing until too late....not to mention my stash was limited.

Then I had forgot until you just mentioned it....I have some good stash now and so maybe I will try to think of something to think about it!

p.s. looking forward to yours!!

So the ol' YH is against stash flash?


We all ought to do it just to be annoying and cause another kerfluffal in blog land. Maybe leave all our websites in her comments for a April fool joke.

Oooh yeah, baby, flash us! Show it all!

I almost forgot about stash flashing... I was hoping it'd be smaller this year, and it seems to have grown instead. Huh, wonder how that happened.

Yay! I'm glad someone is flashing this year. I haven't taken any pictures yet, but I hope to get something done tomorrow. I can't wait to see what you do!

Hmmm, I never heard of FYS, either. Sounds like fun though! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
