It's Raining Sock Yarn!

Okay, not really, but there appears to be an abundance of the scrumptious squishy goodness headed my way - I've got the yarn coming from the painting depicted below, and because my suggestion was chosen, that means I'm going to get April's yarn in the sock club free. As such, since I'd budgeted for that month, I'll buy another member's November yarn that isn't in colors she loves, but I'd sat that month out, feeling the pinch of Christmas.

You all know how crazy I am about socks and sock yarn?

And I told you I promised to make my Big Sis another pair? Well...her yarn arrived today, fresh from Knit Happens in Alexandria, my second favorite LYS in the whole world (Knitter's Knook is my new favorite - which is a good thing since it's local!).

Big Sis warned me that I wouldn't want to send it back.

She was right.

C*eye*ber Fiber's Wool/Tencel sock yarn in Augustus colorway. Isn't it scrumptious?

And I have to send it back. (sigh)

I've emailed Mama E. She's working on another order for Knit Happens. I think I'll call and ask them to hold this colorway for me.

Or maybe...just maybe. I should knit from my sock yarn stash?

OK, does the sock yarn stash weigh more than the Meezer? If if does, you have to knit from the stash.....

Of course you should knit from your own stash. But there's nothing wrong with enhancing the stash, too!

Wait, did I miss something? Why do you have to send it back?

Skeinky! I have to send it back to my sister as KNITTED SOCKS!

Thanks for letting me be your favorite yarnshop! That means so much to me!!! Hope the sinus stuff is better, I've been right there with you.
Someone once told me that sock yarn couldn't be stash as you have a definite purpose for it. I was glad to hear this as my sock bins (note the plural) runneth over!
Love that color, lucky sister. I will be calling you in a day or so, and can't wait to see you again!

Congrats on winning with the Almond Branches in Bloom suggestion. That's some lovely sock yarn you have in the photo there!

That is some of the more gorgeous sock yarn I've seen in awhile - I vote for you to enhance your stash.
Unless your sock yarn stash weighs more than your couch, you can still add to it.

Oh yummy! I'd enhance the stash, but then I have absolute zero will power. :)

Nope. You need that yarn. Heck, *I* need that yarn!

What beautiful spring colors... I think you are allowed to have more stash than the Meezer weighs, after all cats are notoriously lighter than they look:)

Whoops, sorry I'm alittle slow...that's what I get for skimming!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
