I reorganized the sock stash today. I bought these three hat boxes in Philly when I went on the LYS mission. All three boxes were less then ten bucks and make excellent storage containers that are stylish too. The little green bin on top is from the buck store, and excellent purchase also.

All stacked up!

Sock Leftovers: less than 50 gram leftovers for monster socks or baby socks

Solid Colors: Knitpicks Essential, Bare Essential, Wildfoote, KP Simple Stripes

Self Striping: Opal Neon, Drops Fabel, Lionbrand Magic Stripes, KP Essential Multi, Regia

Yarn Snob Bin: Yarn Pirate, Lavendar Sheep, Dream Smooshy, Lorna's Laces, Regia Kaffee Facet, Vesper Self Striping, Knitpicks Gloss , Knitpicks Sock Garden, KPPPM

Yarn Pirate - May Booty Club

I love me some May Booty Club. I am all about this colorway, more then April's, which I loved also. I can't wait to make some yummy socks with this!
Patina's blues are so pretty and light and blendy with the greens and the browns are a perfect offset.

I can't wait till June's yarn!

Fabelicous Ice Cream Socks

I have to make a second post today because I really love the yarn that I bought for these "Ice Cream Socks"...

Drops Fabel is my new best friend. The price is right and the colors are great. It is very comparable to Opal or Regia.

Socks a Plenty...

I have been finishing up alot of socks today because I have so many with "loose ends". Here is a multi picture of all of the socks that are done or partially done.
In order from left to right:
Carolina in Knitpicks Simple Stripes in tropical (one sock)
Slip Rib Socks in Knitpicks Essential in Meadow Multi (one pair)
Vanilla socks in Drops Fabel in Yellow/Pink Mix (one pair)
Charade in Lorna's Laces Sock Multi in Cool (one sock)

I have to get the needles ready for 52 pair plunge II, it starts in less than a week! ARE YOU LISTENING - LESS THAN ONE WEEK!!!

I am going to start getting my stash in order and perhaps divide a few 100 gram balls into 50 grams. I need to print out some patterns - oh boy the excitement. I am debating on if I will call off from work next Monday???

Is that too crazy? A bit obsessive, oh yea!!!

52 pair plunge II and more

I just joined the 52 pair plunge II. I am very pumped and hope I can get alot of pairs of socks done.
Keep your sock knitting fingers crossed!

I am working on a cardi-shrug for a wedding that I will be going to at the end of the month.
Here's what I got so far and a picture of the dress that I will be wearing with it.

Yarn 24/7

Yea so I was told today that I cannot buy any more yarn. I asked J why and he told me that last night I was looking for yarn scraps under his pillow. HA. At least it wasn't because I am buying so much yarn that I have nowhere else to put it. I hide it well, don't tell him that.....
