It's That Time of the Year

Sock yarn inventory.

What do you think?




Close your mouth.

That's good.

Now, ahem, for those who want the dirt, the tally is 117-50g balls and 6-100g balls.

My thoughts on this?

My 100g balls are lonely, so I think I should remedy this problem, ASAP. [snicker]

My last thoughts on this?

I better knit some socks.

Keep On Knitting...

WOW! I actually just told my boyfriend how many sock yarn balls you had. I think I scared or is it scarred him! LOL! Like you said, better knit some socks this year. ;)

Samantha said...

That's a lot of socks-to-be!! :)

Dianna said...

I don't think I have that much sock yarn, but I do have several drawers that contain sock yarn in a tall boy - guess we'd best both be knitting socks this year!

well, then, my 20 or so balls don't feel so bad, lol. you need to get in the sock yarn round robin that's going on at KR. crazy lanea is organizing it. i had to buy sock yarn, lol. (my sock yarn receiver (gee that sounds like football, lol) wanted plain yarns, and all i have is striping stuff) ladies, start your needles!

Donna said...

I think in terms of pairs of socks, we're about even. If I knit nothing but socks, it'd probably take me 2 years to get through the stash. That's pretty scary, huh? ;)

Lisa said...

Holy Moly lady - 117? I thought I had alot of yarn but man, you take the cake on that one!

Happy New Year Michelle.

Rebekah said...

Now that's a lot of sock yarn, although I shouldn't say anything, I may not have quite that much sock yarn, but have 12 rubbermaid totes full of yarn.

Lynette said...

whoa! how did you know my mouth dropped? i'd say you should knit more socks. ;)

enjoy!!!

Curlie Girl said...

Ohhhh....I'll be right over to help you knit socks from all that fabulous sock yarn!

Kimberly said...

Awwwww Man! I thought you were posting a picture of yarn you wanted to sell. :)

Looks like you've got a good stash for sock knitting. I'm too jealous!

Alison said...

Wow! I thought my measly two small containers was a lot.

nadine said...

Deb said...

Thank you from the bottom of my fiber loving heart! I showed that pic of your sock yarn to my husband. He gulped a few times, and then said, "Well, your stash isn't too bad." This is a FIRST!!!!! (luckily he doesn't know what I have stashed in my car, at work, in the basement, in my daughter's closet-tee hee)Knit on!

Monica said...

That is awesome! Knit on!

Rhonda said...

I thought I was the only one with a sock fetish. You win!!!!!!!!!

dragon knitter said...

hey woman, just so ya know, a friend of mine is keeping track of bloggers who knit socks. she's doing "two thousand socks" at www.rosebyany.blogspot.com , and all ya have to do is email her or leave a comment on her blog every time you finish a sock (doesn't have to be a pair, lol). i'm going to try, lol!

Jeri said...

sounds like a sock knitting challenge to me.... :) Collecting sock yarn is SO addictive!

Melissa said...

Oh, so jealous of your sock stash!!! If only I had that much sock yarn, I'd be in Heaven!!!

Jeanie said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

Brenda said...

Wow, I think you're brave to even take the picture. My sock yarn stash is probably quite similar, but I'm chosing to live in denial so I can keep buying more!

Sharon said...

That sure is a lot of sock yarn, now am I to assume that maybe there is other yarn stashed elsewhere??? Yarn Stores love people like YOU (yes as you can tell I am definately still in the denial stage)

Cheryl said...

Simply breathtaking!! Thanks for sharing your stash.
