Sock Yarn Addict HERE!

Today is the day we're supposed to show our sock yarn stash for the SYAC I'm a part of. So I took a few pix... I wanted to show you the sock yarn in their natural habitat. The basket they live in from day to day until I decide to knit them... Oh I forgot to mention after counting the yarn I have 32 skeins enough for about 22 pairs of socks... I didn't even know I had that much sock yarn. Anyways so in their natural habitat they're super happy and comfy laying there dreaming of the sock they'll become one day... I'm supposed to show you all my sock yarn sooo I had to do a bit of coaxing to get them to come out of their home they were reluctant at first... And just piled onto the floor. I know they've been training for this day they were just a little sluggish since they've been sleeping a lot lately. So after a few pep talks I got them to do a pyramid tower for ya'll that's all of them minus the 2 skiens I'm in the process of knitting right now for my sock pal...Oh and you'll see my sock hanging out down there just waiting for it's mate after I'm done with my sockapaloooza socks... Anyways I'm just loving this sock yarn looking at the pix makes me want to grow 6 more arms so that I can knit more socks!! I have a ton of patterns probably 2 times as much as my sock yarn waiting to be knit. Of course I've got to pair up the yarn with the pattern. Not to mention see what the yarn wants.. I don't want to make it angry and not knit it into what it is aspiring to be... LOL ok so I'm a little goofy. Well that's all for now folks...

I think you need to join SKA (sock knitters anonymous. Hello, my name is Allena, and I'm addicted to socks....)
