Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Year of Stash Socks

You know how I like to knit socks (ok, ok, maybe a little obsessive about knitting socks) and I have a small stash collection of yarn (yep, small compared to some you out there).  Well, I joined the Ravelry group "Year of Stash Socks." They even have a webpage! Check it out.

So come January I will try to knit a pair of socks a month using some of my collected yarn. And if I'm really lucky, the sock will count towards either the Solid Socks Ravelry group monthly sock or the Sock Knitters Anonymous  Ravelry group monthly sock!  But... it won't count as the mystery sock. So I will still be trying to knit mystery socks every other month too!

I know, I know, I've probably bitten off more than I can knit chew. But it will be fun to see how many pairs of socks I can knit over the next year.

I've been peeking at that Ravelry group, but I'm planning to focus on sweaters again this year. Sweater quantities definitely take up more of my room then socks. Though with the Gothsocks club, I'm slowly amassing a sock yarn stash as well.

Good luck with those socks!

Good Luck! That sounds like fun. I'd really like to knit out a bunch of my yarn too before I buy more. (As I bought some more just today. Good grief!) :)

I was in a group like this that fizzled out. It did help me whittle down the stash a little. Good luck!
