I am Losing Control

I am losing control. I just can't stop buying sock yarn. There are just too many nice skeins of yarn to buy. Thank God I didn't go to Sock Summit or they probably would have had to admit me to the psych ward.

I purchased quite a bit from my local yarn shop (The Knitter's Edge). I got Prism Merino Mia in the tumbleweed colorway. This is 100% merino yarn. It is so soft. Then I purchased Araucania Itata Multi. This is 70% superwash, 15% silk, and 15% bamboo. Then I found Online supersocke 100 sportive in two colorways. I love OnLine yarn.

Of course, before I bought the OnLine yarn at the Knitter's Edge, I found some to buy on the Internet. It is Online Supersocke 100 Circle. The colorways are so nice I couldn't resist.

Ravelry had a contest to vote for sock yarn for Sock Summit. Artisan Acre Fiber Arts Lambskins was one of the winners and I fell in love with these colors: Corn Maiden and Lightening Bug. I know that I will buy more of her yarn. The yarn is very nice. I can't wait to knit up a sock using this yarn.

I have finished another sock. My Sweet Georgia socks in Saltwater are finally finished. I used size 2 needles with a basic sock pattern. This yarn was real nice to work with.

I completed the body of the Girasole and started the edging. I took a break from it this week, but really need to get back to it. Can't wait until this is finished. I do want to do another one, but maybe a shawl using Wollmeise lace.

Me, too! Is there such a thing as too much sock yarn?
