I realized a simple something. I want to knit with all of the yarn I have. I don't want to die before I finish using my yarn. I want it all to myself. (Selfish, I know, but who said all knitters are nice?) Therefore, I must take some serious stash-busting measures.
At least I don't have a sock yarn stash quite this big yet. I think I can finish what I have in a lifetime.
