A Stash of One’s Own Is Out Today!

Go hug your stash today!


Clara Parkes new book of essay A Stash of One’s Own: Knitters on Loving, Living with and Letting Go of Yarn is out today! It should be a fiber world holiday. We should all get the day off to read the book, eat cake and frolic in our stashes.

Go buy this book, read it and then contemplate your stash, cake is optional.

This is a book of essay, but Clara isn’t the only writer examining their stashes and feelings in this book. Check out the list of authors:

Stash authors – Spinning stash too!


As you can see with my subtle added artwork that it’s not just knitters writing in the book. I am a knitter too, but my essay is about my spinning stash.

The topics in this book vary wildly, it’s not just “I have a huge stash (or a tiny stash) and you should too”, every author poured their hearts through their fingers as they wrote their essays.

If you read the book, let me know what you think!



*Spread the joy!*

    I read the book (I was lucky enough to get an ARC from NetGalley) and I loved it. The point you make about the range of essays is part of what makes this such a strong book. it also helped me think about my relationship to my stash, and be more comfortable with it. Sucha good read.
