So much sock yarn, so little time~

Just look at that loveliness! Is that not just the most capitavting sight? Sock yarn.... love sock yarn. The possibilities are endless. Let's see:
  • Socks, duh
  • Scarf - some of this is most certainly going to become a chevron stitch scarf (imagine the stripey goodness)
  • Hand Warmers for daughter
  • Baby socks
  • Baby hat
  • Not sure what else, but I will think of something. And, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First, Twisted Fiber Art purchased from the delightful Cam at The Urban Knit in the signature TUK colorway - chocolate brown, turquoise and pinks. Organic striping yarn and 500 yards!!! Seriously, go see Cam and her great store, you will be thrilled. And the fun blue and green striped yarn is from The Fiber Denn - it is just swell!

What's that you say? Why yes, that is an obnoxious, yet blissful amount of Vesper sock yarn (that Julia is just a doll!)- however, in my defense, it is not all mine. Some of it is hers (see sister-in-law below on left).... Taught S to knit a little over a year ago and she is nuts about it. Crazy as I am - love it! A freakish amount of stalking of her website and, basically, begging went into this purchase and S and I are over the moon estatic with this yarn! What colors you may ask? Knit and Tonic, Muddy Waters, Neopolitan, Love Stinks, Aquamelon, SweetWater and Strange Little Mama.....

Ok, it appears we ordered one too many Neopolitan and one too many Knit and Tonic and Sweetwater... not a bad problem to have (too much yarn) but I feel badly knowing there are others out there wanting some Vesper. If you are interested in any of those colorways, let me know and I can send you a paypal invoice for the actual cost of the yarn plus nominal shipping.
