sECRET pAL Question of the Week #4 and an update

1) What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”? Probably a good all purpose stock yarn like Cascade 220.

2) What yarn do you never want to be without? Right now at this moment, what could/would be termed as sock yarn. That is my passion at the moment. I collect it when I can, knit it, may even try crochet with it someday.....and the indie dyers and the colors and so many patterns to try....oh my!

In other news I sent out a package to my secret pal!!! Just a small one I really hope she likes it. My main concern is I sent it from a preferred on line retailer that didn't have a gift ship option so I left it in the comments, eek, they are usually super good about any customer preferences and requests and I didn't get any questions back, so..... I cross my fingers and wait to see if and when she gets.

I have pair #4 d one for 52 Pair plunge and the first pair for Summer of Soks 2008. A Christmas Story by White Oak Studios in TV Sock. Colorway is based on the movie, think bunny suit and lamps,lol... these were a toe up pattern with a short row heel and turned out pretty good for the first complete toe up pair. Have the next toe up pair ONT as we speak, Summer 2008 Sock (rav link) by Wendy Knits designed for Summer of Socks 2008 and is being knit in Irish Dreams colorway from Spunky Ecletic via WoolGirl 2007 Sock club.

I have also cast on for the February Lady Sweater(Rav Link) based on the Elizabeth Zimmerman baby sweater pattern of similar name, but a kind soul went a did the math for us and posted it to Rav!!. Cast on in Ultra Alpaca in Forest Heather.
Happy Canda Day to all those Canadians who celebrated yesterday!! and if I don't post before Friday Happy 4th of July!!!!

"Stash" and "complete" are not to be used in the same sentence, unless it's something like, "I made a complete mess of my stash when I went looking for that sock yarn." :)
