Stash Show and Tell

A few bloggers on the KAL have flashed their stash for us to view. Some of these stashes are massive, with huge dollars wrapped up in sock yarn alone. There are so many gorgeous colors of yarn that just beg to be knit with. Since the 52 Pair Plunge is weighing on my mind, I commenced my own stash dive. This is my effort to get all the sock yarns ready. Um, well . . . I'll let the picture speak for itself.



One hank of Yarn Pirate's Sweetheart color way in a 50/50 Merino/Tencel blend. I purchased it around February, 2007 from The Loopy Ewe, where else.

My intuition told me I am a little under prepared.

So began my calculations to see how much all these socks will set me back. I figure, my median sock yarn price multiplied by the number of socks necessary to complete KAL equals the estimated total cost of all sock yarn needed to complete said KAL (this is where I started the quick, wheezing/breathing of what is known as hyperventilation).

Gulp.

No wonder my horoscope said money would be tight near the end of this month.

Can't believe I'm actually first!

Yikes!! That's a lot of money, when you really add it up! But just think of all the hours of entertainment you'll be getting out of it!

LOVE that colorway of yarn BTW. Just gorgeous.
