The "Is Anyone Reading?" Stash Contest

Because of a ball winding debacle this morning, my fibery pursuits have been limited. I've long wanted to know how many miles of yarn I have, so today, I've begun the documenting process necessary to find an answer.

So, my dear reader, I am having my very first blog contest.

I haven't determined a prize as of yet, as my brain is a little frazzled, but I will post the prize to be awarded before the end of the contest.

The question you have to answer is simple: how many miles of yarn do I have in my stash?

You should know the following: I am not counting the acrylic yarn I have stashed under our bed upstairs, miscellaneous handspun from a fiber festival that was labeled only in weight, not in yards. I am currently "in progress" on a project, I will not count the skein of yarn that is attached to my needles. I will, however, count the rest of the yarn not currently in use. (Does that make sense?) I will also not count half-used skeins, as I have a scientifically sound method of organizing the yardage, I'm just lazy.

The closest person to guess without going over will win.. something. The contest will end next Sunday, March 22nd.

Are you sure you want to know how many miles? I'll guess 3 1/2 miles.

Oh no, all these guesses are too low! If your stash is anywhere close to mine, you've got to have at least 25 miles. I wonder how many I have now...

It's amazing how quickly yards turn into miles - I'll guess 16.67

I'll guess 30 miles even, because it so unlikely.

OK, I'm going to say that your stash will get you half way around the world. That would be 12,450.75 miles. Woo-hoo!!
