My Yarn From Sock Summit

Here is the yarn that I brought home. Here is two jumbled up piles of yarn. Does the bumper sticker tell the truth.
From left to right, here goes the purchases: from Knit Witch Yarn Bridge to the Summit, "Portland Rain" and "Brewtopia both yarns are 100% Superwash Merino. The next three are from Mama Llama, "See Spot Run", "Winter" and "Hero". All are a Merino nylon mix. Laying on top is a Fiber Optic Yarn, Foot Notes, this yarn is a Batik, she dye it with 25 colors let it dry and then redye it again. This is one of a kind.

This next group is from one of my all time favorite dyers Miss Babs, she was so wonderful to met in person. All thses colors were dyed just for Sock Summit. "Timberline", "Oregon Cellars" Variation 2, "Roaming Mountain Morning" "Tennessee Moonshine" and "Spinel Ruby". I love all her colors.

In this picture there is The Sanguine Gryphon, Eidos, 100% superwash merino wool "Ctessipus". The next three yarns are from Wool Candy, sweet yarny treats, bamboo merino, "Sakura", 100% superwash merino, "Downtown Dusk" and "Microbrew" both of these colors were in Dye for Glory.
