Faux-beck

I did not go to Rhinebeck although it seems as though everyone else did. So I've been admiring everyone's purchases via their blogs, and came across this gem of an idea: Karrie is pretending she went to Rhinebeck and shows off the 'new' stuff she got (from her stash).

So I went shopping in the plastic bin under my bed, and look at the lovelies I found:


Clockwise from the topleft corner:
1. Suri Dream from Knitpicks in Gloxinia (beautiful deep plum, hopefully to be a Bella Scarf)
2. Sock yarn from Lancaster Cty. Yarns & Wools (courtesy of my Secret Pal 8 spoiler)
3. Cherry Hill Glitz in Foxy Lady (currently on the needles for red sock KAL)
4. Classic Elite Desert (color #2015) from my One Skein Pal. Lovely greens and teals.
5. Twilights Handpainted merino sock yarn .... dyed by me :)
6. Blues and Violets dyed Lamb's Pride... again, dyed by me :)

Fun to rediscover goodies you had! They are all gorgeous, but I particularly like the yarn you dyed yourself, wonderful colours :)

It was very satisfying to look back through my stash, remembering why I had purchased each items. I've come a long way in the last 10 months since I first cast on.

I love the idea!!!! In honor of Socktoberfest I posted a pic of all my sock yarn doesn't make you feel great! Love your stash
