Wow. Sock Yarn. Oh MY!

Pam got me started thinking about just how much sock yarn I had, and today, when my most recent Roxie purchase arrived in the mail, I thought, I've got a lot of Zen Yarn Garden yarn...

Not that that's even remotely a bad thing - it's definitely not! See how pretty?

And there's more of it on the way, too!

So I got to wondering just how many pairs of socks I could make with ALL the yarn I currently have (not just Zen Yarn Garden yarn)...Pam put hers in small brown sacks...I'm not going to do that, tho' I could.

How about (with the two pair on the needles and April's Art Walk selection soon to arrive) 30 pair? Okay. One of those is my sister's socks...

But that's still a lotta sock yarn. Pam's still ahead of me, tho'.

And I'm keeping what I have (for now). I'm not going to make socks out of all of it, either. I have at least one Chevron Scarf and one Feather and Fan scarf in mind for some of this.

Oh...the newest arrival? My own Gigi? She looks JUST like the photo below. Lovely! And not quite as deep as the true VA Tech colors! But if I have to wear something to show my allegiance to my grad school alma mater? Well, these will do!

After all, sock yarn doesn't count...and I'm stashing for retirement in my 401(k)nit account! lolol!

(don't forget - you have till midnight tonight to vote in my contest!)

There's nothing wrong with a lot of Zen yarn garden. Gorgeous yarn!

I've got a LOT more sock yarn than you. A LOT.

Sock yarn doesn't count.

It doesn't matter that I can knit socks for the rest of my life. My collection is my legacy. :-)

I have got to try Zen garden some time -- can you believe I haven't yet? I particularly love the colorway second from the right. Also, you can never have too much sock yarn. Never.

I haven't tried Zen Garden yet. I lead a deprived existence. Must put it on my list. :)

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.
