20ish? Yeah...in base 16

I catalogued all my sock yarn. 20 wasn't even close. I have yarn for a solid 31 pairs. This does not include yarn that's not necessarily for socks (e.g. Schaffer Anne). I'm tempted to declare January a War on Socks, but that'll surely jinx me.

  3. Dale Baby Ull Pink with green and dark pink (?)

Oh MY GaWd! What is right with you???!!? :P

Oi! Now I'm afraid to count the skeins of potential socks in my stash!

Posted by: Melanie | Jan 3, 2006 10:56:12 PM

Wow! That's impressive. Like, about $500 in sock yarns! You could start your own store...

Makes me think I can go out and augment my measly sock yarn stash -- I've only got 5 or 6 pairs worth.

Oh gee, I am sure I have just as much sock yarn as you do... I don't want to think about it. I just ordered more on Jan. 1

Posted by: Paula | Jan 3, 2006 11:54:42 PM

LOL... I think I have about as much... only problem... I've not managed to produce one single sock so far LOL... I've got 2 rows done on another try of a cuff down sock. It is some Opal hand painted yarn in medium grey, dark grey and a sky blue... gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Just need to figure this whole sock thing out I guess.

Loving the math reference in the subject.

Perhaps part of our sock problem is that we tend to pick up a few skeins when we go to MS&W and Stitches when we can't find anything else we want.

Brave girl...I'm not even going to try!

Posted by: Tracy | Jan 4, 2006 8:22:32 AM

Okay - this was exactly what I needed. I'm going to go home and catalog my sock yarn as well. Maybe *that* will convince me that probably, for now at least, I have *enough*. cough. cough.

Posted by: elisa | Jan 4, 2006 8:30:55 AM

I'm afraid to do the same... Lots of fun stuff there! You should probably not invite any of us over. LOL.

Posted by: Chris | Jan 4, 2006 9:13:39 AM

Mmmmmm Sock yarn! Forget knitting it, just roll in it!

Posted by: Johanna | Jan 4, 2006 9:30:43 AM

wow! that's a lot of sock yarn. i'd target the koigu for something else, but even without it, what a yummy list!

Posted by: amy. | Jan 4, 2006 10:58:07 AM

Hmmm, that makes me scared to check my stash. I don't think I have quite that much...nah, I probably have more.

Posted by: Jessica | Jan 4, 2006 12:02:14 PM

Okay, making a list like that is a little bit scary. Note to self: don't :). I hope your sock needles come with a little engine, hehe...

Posted by: grumperina | Jan 4, 2006 1:12:32 PM

hmm, i'm so envious... i have v. little stash of any kind. sock or sweater. but your collection is awesome. thank positive.

Posted by: blossom | Jan 4, 2006 1:13:36 PM

Mmmmm...mountain colors! Hold me back! I made a pair out of that exact same colorway and it's one of my favorites.

It may be alot, but at least they're pretty to pet and look at.

Posted by: Sabrina | Jan 4, 2006 1:38:15 PM

wahey! great post! if i'm going to do the same it had better be before my next order arrives ;-)

Posted by: kris | Jan 4, 2006 2:39:50 PM

Um, I think I might have more sock yarn. I'm not even going to attempt a catalog. Good luck with the sock knitting.

Posted by: shannon | Jan 4, 2006 2:42:14 PM

I was surprised by how my sock stash is too. Sock yarn is pretty small and one can easily and inexpensively--comparatively--purchase enough for a project! If I go to a shop and can't really find anything--I often buy sock yarn! Too easy to stash--and I have only finished two pairs. Pulse warmers are nice in fingering.

You're a collector of fine art!

Posted by: Mary Beth | Jan 4, 2006 5:53:41 PM

Thanks for posting your sock inventory - I'm greatful to see that other people's sock stashs are equal to or larger than mine! And I feel for you and the six different socks since the same thing happened to me last summer.

Posted by: Jill | Jan 4, 2006 8:26:21 PM

Oh. Wow. I feel so much less of a stash-hog now...! :o) Wow. Although, part of me is envious...so many socks-to-be!

Posted by: Kirsten | Jan 5, 2006 2:29:32 AM

I'm not sure i have the guts to do that kind of cataloguing. Ouch.
