31 DBC: What Do You Collect?

The two things that I collect are knitting needles and yarn. I started my collection of needles when I was 10 years old and my grandma taught me how to knit. But I didn't start collecting my own stash of yarn until a couple years after that.

For a couple years I just had the pair of knitting needles that my grandma had given me, then one year for Christmas I asked for more needles in different sizes, as well as a couple different skeins of different colored yarn. That was when I first really started collecting my stash of yarn and needles.

Of course both collections have grown since then. Back in February I had done a post on the different size needles that I own. Since I wrote that post a pair of size 19 knitting needles has been added to my collection.

My yarn collection hasn't changed much over the years since I started it. The collection started back in either January or February of 2010, when I made a blanket for myself. It was started because the November before my sisters and I had first heard of NaNoWriMo and because we were in the process of moving we didn't do it. So Amanda came up with an idea to make a blanket in a month and Amanda, Yavi and I did just that, and I have no idea if anyone else did it with us. Since there was yarn left over from the finished blanket I hung onto it and used it as the started for my yarn collection.
