Here it is

Here's the Contest

I want to see who reads my blog so here's how I'm going to do it.
I have decided to have a contest to see how much yarn I have. I counted it something I never wanted to do . I only counted my sock yarn the rest has not been counted yet and has yet to be photographed. But I will before the contest is over.
Part 1: How much sock yarn do I have? Can you tell my favorite dyer?
So here are the pictures:












OK this is my sock yarn I think I got it all. No guarantee but these are the skeins that I counted. So good luck.This Contest will go for the 2 weeks and then part 2 will begin and go for 2 weeks and then prizes will be given out.I don't know what they will be but I have lots of yarn to give away.

My Knitting

I finally finished my Slippery Slope Socks I think they took forever but I did do several pairs in between them. I'm not really happy about how they turned out, each sock is different. The only thing I can think that I did differently is my tension was different.


I have started knitting in the Super Sock Scarefest. We will get a new pattern every 10 days. So I have to knit a little bit longer and harder every day. This competition is based on points not how fast you have to be creative take good pictures. I just want to knit the socks. I am behind in my 52 pair plunge so I hope this will catch me up.

Will I better get knitting so keep those sticks aclickn'.

Happily knitting socks, Bye.

Amy : Not a bad guess but try higher

Ruth: How about higher and yes STR is one of my fav's

Shair: What do you want another pair of socks

Gena: You can do better then that you've seen the stash and yes Hazel Knits is a fav

Shair: Yes I'll make you socks because what will you do with the yarn

Gena said...

There's to many to count and I've personally seen the stash so I'm going to guess 100 and hazel knits

summermonsoon said...

Your socks ROCK! so if I win I want another pair .... oohhh that sounds greedy doesn't it :-). xo your az cousin

Toby said...

That is a lot of beautiful sock yarn! Talk about eye candy. I'll guess 225 skeins and, hmm, I'm going to guess that you don't have a favorite dyer. ;)

summermonsoon said...

I'm holding at my number and maybe you can teach me to knit this summer :-) .. my sock will never rock like yours though. xo!

Laura said...

I'll guess high... how about 325? It looks like you have a nice variety of yarn so it's hard to guess your favorite, but I'll hazard Yarn Pirate or Zen Garden (I'd guess Hazel Knits but I just read that's one of your favorites and I don't want to cheat).

ikkinlala said...

May I make another guess? I'll guess 301 if I may.

Katie O said...

Wow. I just want to jump in all of those skiens like a big pile of leaves! I'll guess 233.

debbi said...

219 and socks that rock.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I'm going to guess 273 and Opal. Both are just shots in the dark. Whatever the total, it's certainly a beautilful bundle of potential .

LaVerna said...

I will say 277.I won't guess what your favorite is because I saw alot of different yarns there.All very pretty.It would be hard to pick a favorite.

EJ said...

Yeesh - that's a lot of yarn. I have to show my husband so he'll get off my case for having a lot of yarn (nothing like that).

I'll guess 260 skeins and maybe STR is your favorite.

Awesome Mom said...

I am going to guess 300 skeins. Next time my husband harasses me about my stash I am going to show him these pictures. He keeps laughing when I tell him that I have a baby stash.

JC said...

Is hazel knits your favorite?

And I'm going to guess 124 skiens.

Timiae said...

187 skeins. No clue about favorite dyer, so I'll say none. It's whatever strikes your fancy at the time!

Elaine said...

Wow - a lot of sock yarn!

276 skeins

Elaine said...

Woops I forgot to guess Hazel is your fav.

Turtle said...

I'm guessing 242 skeins and that STR and Hazel Knits are your favorites.

squiggi said...

I'm going to guess 235 skeins and you just have to LOVE STR

Jersey said...

Amazing - just amazing! I am speechless both at the sight of the yarn and at some of the guesses.

I'll try 293 which is an amazing number of skeins.

Jenny M said...

I'd guess that there are about 230 skeins of yarn there. I feel so much better about the size of my stash right now. I don't feel superior, but I do have that guilty pleasure of knowing that I'm not as bad as someone else!

I'm a terrible person!

Rachel O said...

Has anyone said YE GADS? Well then, let me be the first. That's a LOT of sock yarn! I feel so inadequate!

My guess is 257.

I sure would love to help you unload some of that :-)


I almost forgot. My guess is that STR is your favorite (or at least one of them)

Jersey said...

I hope it's OK to add my dyer guess (I already guessed 293 skeins).

For dyer I guess Hazel Knits

Abigail said...

As for the dyer I don't know. But I'm guessing 114.

Lizardknits said...

I'm going to guess 232 skeins, and I believe I see a lot of STR.
Elizabeth

katerina said...

mmm.. 168 skeins
and your favorite yarn is ... The Loopy Ewe

purple-power said...

I'll guess 273 skeins, and that your favorite is STR.

tom said...

I hope I'm not too late to the party. I did a scan and that looked like one heck of a pile of yarn. I'll guess 292 skeins, with STR a favorite.

danielle said...

I am going to guess 150 - but looks like I may be a tad low on the guess from the ones posted!

I thought I had a lot of yarn....but I dont have this much SOCK yarn! LOL

(I would show this to hubby to show him I am not all that bad as collectors go....but then he probably would want to delve into my collection to compare and that would be shameful!)
