Sock Stash Pics



When Becky was here, we decided to organize my sock yarn by type. This was the first movement in the getting the sock yarn stash ready to be photoed (I know its not a real word, but I'm working on making it one). We dumped all skeins of sock yarn into a large pile upstairs and then began to separate them out by dyer. It was lots of fun to see some of the stuff that I got over a year ago. It was also a fun sister knitter thing to do. I can't wait until I have the flickr space to get the rest of the sock yarn into Ravelry.
On the knitting front, not much is getting done. I've started the first of my 30 projects for 2008, the Clapotis. I'm making it out of some alpaca that's been in my stash for over 5 years. This is good. 5 less skeins to photo. I also ran a contest on one of my ravelry groups, Mississippi Knitters. That sent 5 other skeins of yarn to a new home. On a side note, if you knit, spin, crochet, weave or dye yarn/fiber, you should join Ravelry. The waiting list isn't that long and its well worth it.

Oh my goodness! I have never seen anything so awesome - all sock yarn! I strive to reach your level of stashiness. I am feeling very stash deprived right now.
