6 skeins of sock yarn left the stash as part of a thank you to my advanced sock class students (That green sock below is what they are working on). I really wanted to push them a bit, so the pattern has a twisted German Cast-on, twisted rib at the top and for the heel flap, and a lace pattern. It is also worked from the top down on 2 circs. Kathy said that she would love to see the size of the stash. I said that would involve cleaning up the stash room and my bedroom for company and the chances of that would be slim. I will flash you some of my sock yarn stash, however. Here is what I would like my stash to look like. I just got this rubbermaid clear plastic tote and it fits perfectly inside the wire cube that is being used to store the other sock yarn. As of right now, I have 6 cubes worth of sock yarn. A new rule was instituted a few weeks ago (post PGH) that the number of skeins of yarn can not increase. This means that I must knit or give away a skein of yarn for another skein of yarn to enter. I knit the Lickety Split baby sweater at knit night 2 weeks ago decreasing my stash by 3 skeins. I also gave away those 6 skeins of yarn. That brought my total skeins of yarn decreased to 9. I happened to discover that WEBS is having a sale on some Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy yarn. 10 skeins of it are on their way to my house. It's very pretty you should check it out at http://yarn.com/ Anyway, that means I need a 1 skein project to finish over the course of the next few days. Baby hat, anyone?
