Houston, We Have An Addict

sweet jesus

Meet my sock yarn stash.

As you can see, it is a little, uh, big. After all, I only have two hands and two feet, and yet there is enough yarn there for 30+ pairs of socks. One may call that an issue, I call it insurence. I mean, we could run out of wool for socks one day and who would be laughing when I still could knit them and everyone else could not? It is also worth pointing out that my feet will never be cold (if I’d ever finish another pair, ahem), nor will they suffer in a sub-par material that can’t wick moisture from my wee piggies.

I was asked what I didn’t need for Christmas shortly after I took this picture. The obvious answer was sock yarn. However the following question now begs to be asked. Exactly how guilty will I feel tomorrow when I wake up and realize that signing up for the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’ Sock Club defeated the purpose of my answer?

    It all looks so pretty, I wish I weren’t sensitive to wool!

    My socks will, alas, remain boring store-bought cotton.

    Okay, I don’t feel quite so bad about my *cough* small sock addiction. At least you have a variety of colors though….do you know if Hilltop still carries that Halloween yarn??? That’s too cute of a concept. 😀 I think I’ll join that sock club too. One can never have too much sock yarn!!!

    *sigh* I needed to spend a pile of money on more sock stuff, right? But I really wanted to… so I joined the sock club, too… It was just jealousy because my sock yarn stash isn’t as, uh, lush, as yours 🙂 That is a beautiful pile of yarn!
