Helping the economy
I have to say since my visit to webs last year, I have been displaying quite a bit restraint with the stash. I decided sock yarn indeed did count if it takes up 2 baskets in your stash. My Ravelry inventory has been stable if not slowly decreasing.
However, I can't always resist a good hook:
This is sock yarn, by Conjoined creations called Flat Feet. It's knitted by machine into a rectangle of fabric. It's then dyed. You knit right from the square.
(Roboto and I may try this someday).
I can't always resist a sale either.
Or Anne. Or orange Anne. I got this from a destash on Ravelry for cheap.
I also traded my Baby Cashmerino for the much sought after Wollmeise sock yarn.
I had decided I was done stalking/hoarding the next 'big' sock yarn. It was getting a little consumerist to me. But since the trade was right and the color is fantastic, I decided to try it out.
