Most of the stash is plötulopi, I think this is because we were making a lot of "bottle warmers" (that are really quick to make so it is almost instant gratification and it is possible to play a lot with the design and color combinations) to give to our friends or as "emergency gifts" for any occasion, so we were always buying some to have more colors to make new bottles. We got to have something around 30 to 40 of these bottle warmers! During Christmas time we gave many of them to friends that needed presents to give (especially to their relatives or friends that are abroad).
There is a lot of létt lopi as well. The reason... I have no idea! I can't recall any reason why there is so much of it in the stash. Maybe is it mostly left overs (and some new balls) of old projects. All this went to a box (along with some other things like bulky lopi, álafoss lopi, kambgarn and a couple of balls of sock yarn) that is now under the bed.
The third box contains the most "luxury" yarns: lace yarn from Evilla (one of my favourites), merino lace, alpaca, cashmere, some blends and others.
In the process of putting some order I had to get a fourh box to put all the yarn I was going to use to make a pullover that I finally never made. It is Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed . I have NO idea what to do with it. I bought it in a sale (and it wasn´t really SO cheap), I really like the color but now I think it is way to chunky!! What to do?! So, this new box went straight under the bed!

Now to finish, when I was doing all this a couple of surprises came up. I found some things that I had totally forgotten about! But that will be a story to tell in another post... hehe.
