It was a beautiful morning, could even open the sliding door, but it has sinced warmed up to 86.
Sock Yarn Stash
This was taken back in May. I had enough for 90+ pairs of socks. Over the summer I slowly went thru it and liberated the yarn that would not be used in my lifetime. Plus I decided that some of the sock yarn would be relegated toward some scarves I want to knit up.
Here is my new and improved sock stash.
I'm down to 37 pairs of socks. It even fits into this handy dandy Ziploc bag!
I got these bags on clearance and knew they'd be perfect for the yarn stash. Since my charity yarn lives in the same closet as my sock yarn, I figured it would be good to bag them up as well.
Here is my charity acrylic stash
and my charity wool stash.
I have quite a bit of each, but what is nice is that the charity yarn was either free or $1/skein. It balances out the sock yarn which was NOT free or $1/skein.
Show Me Your Socks Contest
Jane is having her annual "Show Me Your Socks" Contest and this is my entry. She wanted us to share our favorite sock pattern and a sock that we used that pattern in. I tend to use plain vanilla patterns and let the sock yarn do the talking for me. These are my favorite socks, Lorna's Laces sport weight yarn in a 3x1 rib. These are the socks I pull out the most during the cooler months. The contest is running until tomorrow night so you can still enter.
While digging in the closet I found some projects that need to come out and play.
My seasonal fall project
and my snowman.
I also came across Queen Ann's Lace that I meant to use for the letter Q.
She's turning into a lifetime project. She's not quite 10 years old yet, but she's getting close.
