There may be something you don't know about me....

I am a sock yarn whore. It may be more of an addiction,really, no matter what I do, no matter where I go. I can not turn down the sirn song of the sock yarn.
Some day you may be lucky enough to see my full sock yarn, but for now I'll just show you the new stuff:

The pink socks I finished tonight, Bernat cool crochet yarn, my own pattern on size 1 needles.
Close up of the yarn? Sure...



Down in front, the 50 oz skeins, 1 of each, Lornas Laces jungle stripes and crazy stripes, orange fortisima and jaquard color.
Up in back, the 100 oz skeins, 1 of each: Trekking colors 143 and 144,Austerman step w/aloe vera (awesome!) colors 04 and 07.
04 may be for the new man who has recently turned my heart upside down.(In a good way!!!)I'm thinking his birthday in Augest(No, I'm not getting ahead of myself,he already invited me to his birthday party!). I better start soon, he has HUGE feet!
Oh why do us knitter always fall for the ones with the big feet?? *sigh* anyway ttyl, gotta go play with my new yarn.

P.S. the pattern in back is a gift from the yarn store owner to me for spending almost $90 at her store. It's a sweater made out of 2 strands of sock yarn scraps.
awesome....

introduction

Hi! I call myself "Auntie" and I'm 18 years old.
I've been knitting for 3 years and I have an obsession with knitting socks and starting sweaters and never finishing them.Not to mention trying to get the Yarn Harlot to visit a LYS near me!!!!I have all of her books and I've read every blog entry she has ever written.Obsessed?Me? Ummm......... Maybe.....
Anyway.....
I knit,crochet,sew, collect dolls,bears/bunnys, yarn and fabric.
Currently I have the following in progress:
Miter square blanket
2 pairs of socks
sweater for mik
2 corner to corner afghans
sleeve to sleeve sweater for me
Jessie sweater from Stitch 'n Bitch for me
2 granny square blankets
and thousands of squares cut out waiting to be sewen up into blankets!!
On my last pay day I got 2 skeins of each colorway that my Wal*Mart had of the new Bernat cool crochet yarn (70% cotton 30% nylon) to knit socks with.That was a total of 16 skeins of yarn, I'm estamating 2 50G skeins to 1 pair of socks.I'll let you know, I'm making up a pattern a I go. This yarn is only slightly thicker than standard sock yarn so it should work well.

Note: This is NOT all of my sock yarn, just the new stuff, and it's not even that great of a pic.I Jut wanted to post a pic:
