Sock Yarn Addiction

Ok, I have a problem. First, a completed pair of socks I gave to a co-worker.

Now, for the problem. Here are the balls of sock yarn I have.
Yes, quite a few. Opal, Regia, etc, etc. Some to knit boy socks, some to knit girl socks. The next ones are Lorna's Laces, but they are special because I designed the colorways when I lived in Ohio for the local yarn shop and they were dyed for the shop. Sunsets, from left to right, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

Love Lorna's. See all of my Lorna's Laces together:

And then for the rest of the handpaints and odds & ends:

Yes, a bit of an issue when I count it all up. Enough yarn to knit 71 pair of socks, plus some. But I love sock yarn and can't quite stop myself. :-) And there are worse things.

THAT IS NOT A PROBLEM!!!! I have enough for about 300.
Now you can send me some of that Lorna's Lace. I love it too and those colours look yummmy! I am not kidding.. If you want to sell or trade.

Oh my goodness! That's all I can say. I thought I had a lot of yarn it was taking up three storage containers so I decided to donate some to my church to make prayer shawls. That is a lot of sock yarn.. but it is all pretty hince justified!

Want some more? I think I can top you on this one!
I'm not sure how many pairs I can do, but I have 3 shelves full...

We haven't dyed those colors for years! They sure are pretty! Still have the recipes though.
