Recession Stash Bust 2009-Episode 2

I thought I better get some decent pictures before I stretch it all out. I have been wearing it every chance I get. It is so soft and snuggly and the color is so much fun!

Pattern: Wicked
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in Ruby River

I bought this yarn over a year ago at a store closing sale. I'm almost done with my second sweater from stash yarn this year. I'm so glad I stocked up when I could. More info here for Ravelry users.

Recession Stash Bust 2009-Episode 1

These were actually began before I was laid off but as they are made entirely of leftover bits of sock yarn in the stash they qualify. They are as ridiculously crazy as expected and I can hardly wait until it is cold enough to wear them out.
The pictures are not great as it is difficult to photograph knee socks on oneself and I did not want to interrupt the tireless job searching efforts of M for fear that I may be knitting in a cardboard box some day not so distant.

I started off recording what all the bits of yarn were. I think I have all from the left sock but lost interest and/or wasn't sure about some in the right. The cool thing is I can look at these and remember so many sock projects, mostly for other people. It's like a time capsule of sock knitting that I can wear. Thank Goddess for the stash! I'm off to work on Episode #2. If you have access to Ravelry more details can be found here.
