Stash Enhancement for Pattern Purposes

It sounds like a more noble cause than just plain stash enhancement, don't you think? I got these yarns to use to write a sock pattern. Not all of them will be used in the pattern, but since you can't always tell how a yarn will look on the computer, I like to get more than I'll need. And also, that way I don't run out of sock yarn. Because that could be disastrous. And really inconvenient. Well, I'm sure you understand, and if you don't, knit a sock, then you'll understand.

Anyway, these are from Yarn 4 Socks, a web based yarn store that specializes in (wait for it) - SOCK YARN! From left to right are Shibui Knits in Breeze, Madelinetosh in Logwood, Fleece Artists Seawool in Spring, and Seacoast Handpaints in Olive Branch. You'll have to wait and see which ones I use for the pattern and the pattern won't be available until after the first of the year, but these yarns are so pretty, I had to share. Also, its fun to cause trouble.

...this would be why I now have a designated "sock yarn drawer" in an old dresser in my spare room !!
I just finished a clapotis from two skeins of STR yarn. Oh, the things you can do with hand dyed sock yarns!

Since you are tantalizing us with sock yarn, do we get to vote on which one you should use first? I've been eyeing sea wool for awhile, wondering how it compares to "regular" wool. I suppose I could just buy some, but I've got such a sock yarn stash it's hard to justify further acquisition.

P.S. I'm almost finished with my Scheherazade stole. About time! It's been 2/3 done for nearly a year. I chose to do mine in garter stitch, and I think I'm going to like it that way. Can't wait to block it out and get the full effect. I'm planning to show it off at the Boise lace knitting retreat later this month.

This is way off the subject, but in reading you archives, I saw pictures of the "window clings" you purchased. Where do you find them? It looks like a perfect amusement for my granddaughter.

Love your blog.

Thanks
