A quick glimpse through my stash might lead you to conclude that I only knit with sock yarn. You’d be wrong but only somewhat.
Sock yarn is so easy to buy because I always know what I’ll make with it. As opposed to the two skeins of Tosh DK, one orange and one dark grey, that I bought several years ago in Maine. Or the lusciously soft merino-alpaca blend that I couldn’t resist but am paralyzed by choice when it comes to selecting a pattern, a dilemma that applies to just about all yarn in my stash.
Thank you for coming to my “Stash Psychology” TED talk.
I made the leg longer than the pattern called for and included an Eye of Partridge heel, my favorite.
They’re now wrapped in tissue paper and tucked away for a special December birthday.
Neither of my two current WIPs is a sock. How long do you suppose that’ll last?
