Sock Monogamy

...I don't think I suffer from it.

I accumulated these lovelies over the holidays, and I am so eager to dig into them. I have a pair of socks right now that are about 80% finished... but all I want to do is start a new one!

Okay, technically this next skein is Andrew's. I had bought it before Christmas with the plan of knitting him a pair of socks... but that didn't happen. So, I wrapped up the skein and put it under the tree for him. Needless to say, he was very confused. My Mom thought it was hilarious, though.

And this last one was a Christmas present to me! My Mom dragged my Dad to a Sheep and Fibre Festival in Duncan, BC earlier this year and they bought this yarn from the Hummingbird Fibre Arts booth.

That's what you get for having all this pretty sock yarn! Tell you what: Anything that's too tempting, you send to me. Then, you can finish what you're currently working on, and when you're done, you find out I've "misplaced" the yarn you sent. Double stash shrinkage in one go! Great idea, no?
