stashing

It seems I've been yarn shopping lately ... most probably not, but I wonder if I can use all this up until summer ?

Anyway, some beautiful Noro Kureyon (shade 156, I think) for a Klaralund (already started, and progressing well). It's a bit rough when I'm knitting it, but everyone says it will soften up after washing, so let's see ...



And ... well ... I haven't even finished my first pair of socks yet, but there's no way I could resist this: Landscape Fire, by Kaffe Kassett for Regia. What can I say ? The colors are beautiful.



And for more socks: Hummingbird by Artesano (in Pheasant)



This one is hand painted and came from Uruguay ... four skeins of merino bulky in wine red, from handpaintedyarn.com. Planned for a Chérie amour later on, if I don't change my mind



That looked like a mess, didn't it ? But last Sunday during our crafts meeting the girls helped me out, and we used my (new) swifter and yarn winder to turn all that into this:



It looks so much prettier now. I think I'll just leave them on my desk for the time being so I can look at them once in a while ... back later this week with (hopefully) some more finished items

Gorgeous yarns Tania. You will definately have some gorgeous socks to wear too once you knit up that sock yarn.

You have great taste in yarns! Don't worry about acquiring a sock yarn stash before knitting socks because that's exactly what happened to me! I couldn't resist all the wonderful yarns out there. Eventually it diminished once I learned how to knit socks. Yours will too! That's why you'll have to keep on buying gorgeous yarns! :) Who says knitting isn't practical!?

Oh, I could stare at yarn pics indefinitely! Especially yours - beautiful! And, I agree with iknitipurl -- sock knitting is addictive so you definitely don't want to find yourself without a respectable stash of sock yarn for those times when you absolutely *must* cast on for a pair ;) That Kaffe Fassett colourway is delightful!
