Ssssh, it's secret stash!

It's just you and me, right? No one else need know. Keep it to yourself, I don't want hubby finding out, but here's the "additional" sock yarn I asked my knitting group buddy to grab for me on Monday.

Fair isle-type blue:



Some Fair isle type reds:



I'm presuming this is fair isle type too as it's the same name, but it doesn't quite look it. This is nice icy blues & greys:



Then there's the self-striping. This one was really hard to photo, it seemed to suck the light, but it's very nice shades of brown with the odd little blue bit in, just for fun:



Finally, this one is blacks and greys. My Dads name is written all over this one!:



That's 10 pairs of socks worth of yarn for €25. Bargain! Although I might use some of it for a shawl. We'll see.

Just don't tell hubby!

Good knitting!

Or a sock yarn cardi! Great haul! I stayed AWAY this time because I still haven't knit the sock yarn I got the last time they had a special offer.

Wow, that IS a bargain, lucky you! Won't tell hubby, don't worry.

Yay for sock yarn. At least you knit socks - unlike myself. However, like S-K-U-T-B, I still have the packs that I got last year, so stayed away this time. Not that I can get out of the house for snow anyway, tho'!
