Yarn Mountain!

Seeing as how its my Birthday next week, I thought I'd have a little competition :D
Leave a post here, having a little guess as to how many skeins you reckon I have on my kitchen table, and it'll earn you an entry into the comp :D
Prize will be some yarrrn, if you are a knitter, or some fibre if you are a spinner......

Oh yes, that will be nice yarn for us ... ;)
I was going to say 80 as so many others, but so as not to be too boring, I'll say 79. :P

Can't wait to see the dyed result.

I can't say the same as some one else but looking at it as a pyramid (and multiple ones some one could easily say 64 but I'm going to guess 68 thinking you may have slipped a few in somewhere.
I was drooling over this picture trying to see if I could count them LOL!
