When sock yarn is glue

It's a year now since I first joined the Vesper Sock Club at Knitterly Things, which means I have received 12 skeins of sock yarn. (we're not counting the other great sock stuff I got from the Biscotte & Cie club, 'kay?)

And in that year I have knit 4 pairs of socks, 3 of them from Vesper sock yarn.

Which leaves me with... 9 skeins? Of which two are slightly heavier solids I could use for shawls or scarves? Okay, 7 skeins. Which, at my current rate, would keep me socking for just over two years.

Clearly I could skip a season with the sock club now. I mean, I'm going to be swimming in sock yarn soon, right?

Right. Good decision: I will skip a season with the sock club.

At some point. Because yesterday this arrived:

and I went straight to the computer and renewed for spring. Backbone like a wet noodle, that's what I've got.

there is no such thing as too much sock yarn. Trust me on this...
