...and why I am not buying yarn this year.
At last count, I counted 32 finished pairs of socks that I've made for myself:
That number includes the three pairs of socks that I've made so far this year, but they are not pictured.
I made eleven pairs of socks in 2012, and eight of them are for me :
My intention is to make 12 pairs of socks this year. The fact remains that I have 50 skeins of sock yarn. I looked at the 112 entries - mostly comprised of single balls/skeins of yarn - currently in my Ravelry Stash. I deduced that over half of those entries were purchased in 2012.
I know my stash isn't big by some comparisons...I have a friend who reads this blog. I have not seen her stash personally, but from what I can gather, her stash is epic. It is LYS-stock-sized. I say "good for her!" I just can't do that though. I can't think for all the stuff.
So, that's why I am not buying yarn for a while.
