My Sock Yarn Stash

I've been wanting to do this for a while and figured the New Year was a good time to get motivated. I went through my yarn stash and pulled out all of the sock yarn (at least I hope there are not any skeins hiding anywhere around the house!). Here's a photo of the stash laid out. I got a new camera too, so had to try it out anyway! There are also some socks on the needles at the moment, so there's more to this. I have some patterns picked out for specific yarns, but sometimes I find later that something else will work better, so this isn't set in stone.

Here's my updated list:
  1. Knit Picks Essentials - Dusk
  2. Knit Picks Essentials - Pine
  3. Knit Picks Essentials - Meadow Multi
  4. Knit Picks Essentials - Peacock Multi
  5. Knit Picks Essentials - Carbon Twist
  6. Knit Picks Essentials - Volcano Twist, Black and KP Palette White (for Bucanneer Booty)
  7. TV Yarn - Medium
  8. TV Yarn - Bride of Frankenstein (Bellatrix)
  9. Cherry Tree Hill - Maple Sugar (Fawkes)
  10. Knit Picks Palette - Sky
  11. Knit Picks Memories - Rocky Mountain Dusk
  12. Trekking XXL
  13. Berroco Sox #1476 (Marion Socks)
  14. Berroco Sox #1474
  15. J. Knits - Kansas (Firestarter)
  16. On Your Toes
  17. Wisdom Yarns - New York
  18. Alpaca Socks - Fruit Salad (Purls and Lace Socks)
  19. Tofutsies - #801
  20. Sockotta #505
  21. Regia Jacquard
  22. Regia Spirit
  23. Socks that Rock - Fire on the Mountain
  24. Crystal Palace Maizy - Iguana
  25. Pattons Classic Wool - Harvest (Winter Socks)

I have decided to hopefully motivate me to use up this stash to place it in a place where I can see it instead of in storage in a plastic container! So I found this nice basket in my storage (stuck a towel inside to keep any yarn from snagging on the wood) and placed it in my bedroom on the bureau.

Some on the needles:

  1. Crystal Palace Panda Cotton - Roses
  2. Opal - Jaywalkers
  3. Tofutsies - Peppermint Twist
  4. Pattons Classic Wool - Winter Socks
