A is For . . .

Anne, for organizing the 2006 ABC-along.

Great idea or what.

I've tentatively decided to try and tie the ABC-Along together with Kim's Stash-along. Every other week I'll try and find a yarn, needle, or pattern in my stash that begins with the appropriate letter.

For my first ABC-along post, I present . . .

my stash of Anne sock yarn.

I've only knit up one skein of it so far and I've gifted the socks so I can't show them to you. But it was wonderful yarn to knit with. It's a merino/mohair/nylon blend but the mohair is smooth, not fuzzy. I've heard that it's wonderful for shawls, too, and I've got the white/yellow/blue skein earmarked for another Feather and Fan triangle shawl.

When I got the skeins out to photograph them, I realized how predictable I am when it comes to choosing colors.

Two nearly identical "one-of-a-kind" skeins, purchased at two completely different times in two completely different states.
What were the odds of that.

Who's linking here?

Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
