May Sock Yarn Acquisitions

I'm a sucker for yarn. No, this is not news. What is new for me is the preoccupation (obsession?) with sock yarn. I'm so hungry for it that anytime someone mentions the softness, colorful beauty and stitch definition of their latest find, I'm all over it!

These are the latest entrants to the socks-to-be line up:

May Sock Yarn
Top to bottom, clockwise, we have:

Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock
Desert Flower
Gold Hill
Black Purl

Hill Country Sock Yarn
Autumn Leaves
Honey Butter
Ruby Red Grapefruit

Schaefer Yarns
Little Lola

Fleece Artist
Sea Storm

Mind's Eye

And in the center of this yarn buffet, we have Plymouth Royal Bamboo in the "Flame" colorway. This is my first time purchasing bamboo yarn and while it is not for socks, I thought I'd include it anyway. So very soft. And from a renewable resource for the green-minded among us.

Now, go! Wipe the drool off your chin while I finish knitting that baby sweater sleeve.

I am so drooling! Love the Bamboo in the center!

I think sock yarn is so addictive because it's realtively cheap and you can really knit outside you usual "comfort zone" with colors you might never use for a blouse or sweater!

Oooooooh... all the beautiful, yummy sock yarn! *swoon* I'm trying to recover from the beauty - the only thing that is helping me is the fact that I'm going to pick up my Yarntopia custom-dyed fleece artist today, and at the same time, I'm meeting Jeanie of Discount Yarns and maybe some new Hill Country sock yarn too? :D

Thanks.... all that drool and no outlet for my sock yarn frustration! Beautiful stuff, and I keep wanting that Hill Country sock yarn. Is the only place to get it?
