Flash your sock yarn stash. (Pic intensive).

I'm a sucker for stuff like this, "flash your sock yarn stash"-- originated @ knittyboard. You know you wanna play too!! :)

Pic intensive!!

I originally guessed I had about 30 pr. worth of socks in yarn, but its more like... 75 pair. I am embarrassed to show yall this, but we're all friends, right? :)

Apologizes in advance for some not-so-clear photos, my little bumblebee was having too much fun trying to play with the yarn and kept bumping into me as he "rearranged" it over & over. There are better pics of each individual skein somewhere on this blog (they've all been taken before, I'm pretty sure.)

On with it then.

My sock yarn bin. It used to be just my yarn bin, but all non-sock stuff has been moved out. Granted, most of the stash is sock yarn... but 95L of socks is a lot.

If your house is burglarized any time soon, the police can start their investigation with your blog-readers!

rene said...

Beautiful! This really makes me want to go and order some of the sock yarns I've never tried. Your stash is inspiring.

(Now I'm trying to make a mental inventory of what sock yarns I have and wondering how wrong I am. :)

No, not crazy, just well stocked. I'd pull mine out for a photo shoot but the Husband is around this week and he has no idea. It's the ultimate hide in plain sight with the sock stash bin in the family room.

Zonda said...

Wow, some lovely yarns there! Nice pics too!

BTW, thanks for the preview on what to expect my stained glass tiny toes to look like! :)

DROOLS! WOW!! Gorgeous colours!! Flash well done!!
I had friends over last weekend and we sat in "my room" and out of the blue one asked "is there YARN in ALL those boxes?" I said: "technically no, because some only has washed fleece in it...". Some people just don't understand!
