My little "A" cup sock yarn Stash & a very long overdue "Thank You"

FLASH! AHH AHH!

This is my sock yarn stash. All 13 pairs worth. I feel so inadiquate.
Starting from the back, L-R we have: 4 balls of Gedifra Fashion Trend Sportiva, 1 Lion Brand Magic Stripes, 1 mystery ball - I think Regia (It was froma swap); next 2 rows: 4 balls of Knit Picks Dancing (above and below) , 4 balls of Knitpicks Simple Stripes (top), 2 balls of Knit Picks Essential, 2 balls of Regia Jaquard, and A skein of Cherry Tree on the end. Down front: Cherry Tree from my Secret Pal(!), 2 balls of Silga, and another final skein of Cherry Tree.

It's sad, but that's it.


Next we have the leftovers. I have small feet., and don't particularly like long socks, so a lot of these balls have almost enough for another pair of "peds". I need to get some cooridinating yarn to do heels and toes - then we'd be in business!

Wow this picture sucks. Oh well. That's what you get for taking pictures after dark.
The back row is all sockotta - all but the last ball on the right is from my end of the season gifts for my staff. The next row is two Lana Grossa's, 1 regia, the ends of 2 KP Essential, and the ends of two Handpainted skeins from Shetland Farms - from the CT Sheep and Wool Festival.
I use the leftovers of my sock yarn a lot. Lifelines in non lace projects, waste yarn for shoulders, etc.

And finally... my long overdue public shout out ot my Secret Pal!! Take a look at my awsome goodies!


SP7 you Rock!

YOu got a coffee maker from your secret pal? Wow. That's awesome.

Don't be ashamed of your stash! It just shows that you have restraint when it comes to sock yarn, unlike me, and that you have more room to stash more should you decide to! Me, all my drawers are full for my sock yarn space.

I don't consider your sock yarn stash a inadequacy.. I consider it an opportunity :)

Glad you enjoyed your things!
