Need a Yarn Niffler

We're moving, and when you move with Muggles you can't use any magic at all! This makes it really, really hard to move - you can't even find where everything is unless you actually go and look.

For example, I think I've packed all my yarn. But I can't be sure, because a simple "Accio Yarn" would violate the International Statutes on Magical Secrecy, and then I'd have a lot more to worry about than just some misplaced yarn.

So I propose a contest. Guess how many balls of yarn I'll find before I'm done packing. Post your answer as a comment, and once I'm settled in I'll send off an owl with a small goodie to the person who's right.

How about 50 skeins? I probably have about that many stash around my house and that many when I unpacked!

Good luck with all the unpacking!

My guess is that you will find 42 skeins of yarn. Don't you ever wish for a set of Mrs. Weasley's needles? I'm posting a link to your contest over at my blog. Cheers and good luck with the move.

Since you think you've packed most of your yarn, I'm thinking you'll find at least 12 more skeins. I wish you luck, good nerves and decent weather.

14 and a half.

I'm guessing you'll come across some mini stash of 21 skeins.
All the best with your move!
