As an example...
When dyeing yarn, instructions usually suggest one ties the yarn loosely yet securely in two to four places along the hank. This is to discourage tangling in the dye pot.
If you are Piggy, this should be multiplied by a factor of at least two. Failure to do so pretty much guarantees you'll be spending an entire evening de-tangling two hanks of yarn that you'd wanted to show off on your blog for the first post of NaBloPoMo 2009.
(And no, I have no photographs to show you of this; a raging, fuming, tearful Piggy can't hold the camera still. Instead, I'll leave you with a photo of one last new stash acquisition I forgot to include yesterday.)
Erm...that would be Wollmeise. 100% Merino Superwash. Sabrina colourway.
And yes, Piggy has indeed reached stash overkill.
