Up to our knees in sock yarn

Okay, Sharon & I usually cycle our stock of sock yarn: a little Lorna's Laces, Jawoll, Baby Ull, Cherry Tree Hill, Wildefoote, etc. We like to keep it fresh.

Well somehow a whole lotta sock yarn has arrived: Smooshy from Dream in Color, Tiny Toes from Interlacements, Aktion from Lang/Jawoll. And more!

It is all too pretty to be believed. Please come and get some before I take it all home.
