Spring Yarns

Hey Everyone!

A few days ago, I received the order of the two hanks of spring colors I had ordered from Bumblebee Acres Fiber Farm.

I had ordered a hank of Speckled Eggs and a hank of Orange Blossom, which are both on the coquette yarn base.

I also got it wound into cakes the other day, so it will be ready to go to knit from, whenever I am ready to knit it up.

I have definitely been cutting back on buying yarn, especially now that I have seen what I have and have been able to fit it all in two containers.

I at at the point where I have ordered all the colors I liked, and now the new colors that I like are few and far between. Knowing that I have the colors that I wanted makes it easier to not buy as much new yarn. When I do it’s only a hank or two a couple times a year.

Last night I finished up the first sock I am making of the pair, using the colorway “Lady Danbury”, from Bumblebee Acres Fiber Farm. It was a limited run of the Bridgerton inspired yarns, and I had ordered the two hanks I wanted, “The Duke of Hastings” and “Lady Danbury”. I already finished the pair I made using the “Duke if Hastings” colorway, and now I am working on the “Lady Danbury” pair.

The last few days have felt like summer, so I am glad it has cooled off a bit, at least for a few days. My allergies were really bad while it was so warm.

The Duke of Hastings

Hey Everyone!

Last night I finished up the pair of “Duke of Hastings” socks I have had going for a few weeks now. The yarn is from Bumblebee Acres Fiber Farm and the yarn base is the Coquette Sock base.

Between work and packing, knitting has taken a back burner to the other things I have going on.

I did get another pair of socks started last night as well. I don’t know how long this pair will take me to knit up, but the process will definitely worth it. Knitting helps keep me grounded and focused when everything else is crazy.

Organizing my Sock Yarn

Hey Everyone!

Now that moving is actually going to be a reality, I have been cleaning my room.

Today was the day that I finally found where I have stashed all my sock yarn, and got it into as few containers as possible. All my sock yarn is fit into two containers. I am definitely surprised at how little sock yarn I actually have left. That is a good thing though, I seriously thought I had way more than I do. Considering that socks are kind of my thing at the moment, I am glad that I have plenty to work with, yet not so much, that I am seriously considering getting rid of any.

I also have been able to go from storing my socks in four plastic storage containers, now down to two. I consolidated all my non holiday / seasonal specific socks into a larger container, as well as my liner socks. I left my seasonal / Holiday socks in their own separate container.

It’s nice to see that I have more socks knit up than I have sock yarn left. While I am not actively looking for more sock yarn, if I find something that I really like, I will order it. Seeing the sock yarn that I do have, it has reignited the excitement I have for knitting socks.
