We have a winner! We have two winners, actually! They made the closest guesses.
I was not very specific when I asked how much colourful sock yarn I had.
That actual number of balls is *only* 32! (Shock, gasp!) Yes, you heard a-right! Only 32! Amongst those is about 8 100g lots, which is more than enough for two socks, and the rest is single sock balls. So that means I have enough yarn for about 20 more pairs of socks. Plus I have some handspun that is lurking elsewhere, ready to pounce when I least expect it.
*But* I also had about 10 lots of partial balls/skeins in there. That is 42!
So this means *TWO* winners!
Katt and Chris, please specify your prize - yarn type and colours! Katt loves the brights - more brights, Katt? And Chris is on a GF diet like me, so an extra couple of yummies will go in the parcel for her.
If I had waited another week before running this little comp, there would be another four skeins, but two are for a gift. Gifts are allowable and don't count under the no more stash enhancement policy? (except for the Blue Moon sock club... ooops... no link cos registrations are supposedly now closed)
I confess. I bought more cheap yarn today. I am a sinful woman. And on Sunday. It was the colours. I could not help myself. It was novelty yarn. It was the textures. I *CONFESS!* All up it has cost me about $10.
See all those poor little polyesters and viscoses that died to give themselves up for tacky yarn that delights me?
See them all in this slightly blurry closeup???
I have a bug about dull green and (amost any shade of) pink together at present. I am NOT going to paint the house in those colours though. I think I will stick with having yarn and pens in those colours (the pens probably set me off on this latest thing, but I have often wanted me some Knit Happens sock yarn, even though I know it gets muddy when knitted up - it just looks so pretty in the skein!)
The sock continues. The blue-green novelty wrap continues. Third ball of that - knitting on 25mm needles continental style really helps zip through the yarn. It is pretty. I like it. It is in me colours. Lots of things are me colours except yellow based and dull colours.
I'd better publish this blog entry - Peevish is probably getting peevish by now...
