Look what sprouted

I guess all that extra rain we’ve been getting the last few months in our area had some effect. When I came home today, even the cat trees were blooming….with sock yarn! And one of the sock ‘buds’ has started to flower, producing a slowly striping sock up there in the right-hand corner.

Okay, so this isn’t an April Fool’s joke – it’s my Stash Flash for the Sock Yarn Addict’s Club, which kicks off today. So here is my entire stash of sock yarn – well, minus 10 balls of a superwash pink wool in sportweight that wasn’t actually sock yarn but which I have determined now is, since it’s the perfect weight and color for those Breast Cancer Ribbon socks I’m going to be making later. With those ten, I’ve got 40 balls of sock yarn in my stash…and that doesn’t count the 3 skeins of Lorna’s Laces that are earmarked for a baby sweater set. It seems like a huge pile to me, but I’ve been seeing skein numbers more than twice that being flashed around by other SYAC members, so maybe it’s not as bad as it could be (heh).

Richard’s been making comments about his poor, cold, neglected feet lately, so I guess I’d better spend a little more time finishing up the mate for that one lonely sock sitting atop the cat tree of stash. Maybe tonight we’ll put in a movie and I can focus on sock knitting. After all, getting all my stash in one place and remembering everything I’ve got has inspired me. Must. Knit. Socks!

    hehehe great idea for a creative pic! Is that sock made of Lana Grossa Megaboots stretch? I think that might be the same as the yarn I have on order. Happy sock stash knitting!

    Yes it is! I really like it – the colors are lovely and the yarn is nice to work with.

    Poor neglected Richard’s feet. My heart goes out to him.

    Your sock yarn is blooming? Why won’t mine? Did it need more sunshine?

    Did you manage to convince the cat that the balls of yarn are not toys? Even if they are on the cathouse?

    Heh. I snuck all the sock yarn onto the tree and then back off while the cats were distracted elsewhere – for some reason I can’t trust them with unattended yarn (grin).
