Sock Yarn, Scarves, & Stitch Markers

Well, as of yesterday, I have 10,170 yards of sock yarn. In Lime & Violet Sock Marathon terms, that's 5.77 miles of sock yarn. Oh my. Here's a flash of my stash. Some of the skeins are stacked.
From the left: Lorna's Laces, Louet Gems, Cherry Tree Hill, Mama E's C*Eye*ber Fiber, Scout's Swag, Hill Country Yarns, Knit Picks Memories, Knit Picks Memories, Knit Picks Gloss, Metamorphosis, Socks That Rock, and Vesper. The Vesper is the yarn I won from The Plucky Knitter last week. I'm anxious to try out the Jaywalker pattern with it.

From the left: Plymouth Sockotta, Trekking XXL, Austermann Step, Mountain Colors Mountain Goat, Mountain Colors Mountain Goat, Lang Jawoll, Regia Bamboo, Tofutsies, Schaefer Anne.

Some sock yarn is actually in use; for example, 2 skeins of Socks That Rock for the Chevron Scarf.I am absolutely in love with this project. Socks That Rock yarn truly is amazingly beautiful, and absolutely wonderful to work with. I only wish I wouldn't get so distracted spending so much time looking at knitting on the Internet, and would spend more time actually knitting!

I made my stitch markers for the Stitch Marker Exchange. I also made a 2 additional sets as a surprise for a couple of my blogging buddies, and a set for my Secret Pal 10, which she will receive in her final box in a few months. I really enjoy making these; I think beading is the next best thing in my life, after knitting of course!

That's a heck of a lot of sock yarn! I didn't officially join the L&V sock marathon because I had yet to ever finish a sock at the time that they started it. (I have to confess; I do also have a heck of a lot of sock yarn for someone who only recently finished my very first pair of sock.)

The scarf is gorgous, too!

I am awe of your sock stash! That scarf is really pretty - are you alternating with a solid color is that just the way it is knitting up?

Your stitch markers are beautious - nice job!

I have to say that sock yarn is just beautiful! I'm very jealous of your stash. Right now I don't really have a stash, I'm kinda buying as I knit. But I'm definitely jealous!

The stitch markers look wonderful! Were they all for the stitch marker exchange?
