skein mountain, sock summit

I dyed some navy blue today which looks like a comfortable pair of jeans.

The tally is up to 586. The numbers took a slight backslide because I sold some skeins (thank goodness!) to The Spinning Room, and I gifted three skeins to friends.

After a wonderful Independence Day weekend with company, I got back to work yesterday. While dyeing I started to pack up some of the yarn. It's getting a wee bit crowded in the old dining room around here.

I counted up the number of skeins I still have to dye, and tonight I am confident that I will be able to dye up every single white skein of sock yarn I have in the house.
All 326 of them. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Looking good! How are you getting it all to the Summit?

  2. I am going to use UPS freight.

  3. Hi Karin,
    You just amaze me with how much yarn you are dying. That blue is so beautiful in the photo, I bet it's gorgeous in person! There are going to be some very excited shoppers at the Summit. I am so excited for you.
    Good thing you don't have to pack all that yarn in a suitcase!

  4. WOAH! You are amazing! I LOVE the color of those skeins above....

  5. Holy cow, i think your 9 bajillion skeins of yarn keep you busier than my 4 kids do. You are a hard worker. Beautiful!

  6. ooooh Karin, that Paprika colourway? I wants to eat it? I wants to love it! I wants to take it home with me... In fact, I may put off knitting up the socks I am designing inside my head right now until I can get some of that to knit them in.

  7. Is that a box of Spilled Wine on the floor in the last post? It's Beautiful! Sending you wishes to sell it all at the summit. Keep going but breath deeply and Don't forget to have fun too.
