I did a crazy thing (which really is not all that crazy for me) I joined the Sock madness 3 competition this year. You know how I like socks! Ok so I thought that I would share what yarns I have picked from my stash to use for each round I gave myself two options for each round so here they are.

A. Wollmeise in Veilchen
B. Superwash 100% spanish merino wool from Tricot Treat on etsy in colorway Grasshopper

A. Koigu KPPPM in color P538-19
B. Koigu KPM

A. 100% superwash merino in Green tea by See Jane Knit
100% superwash merino in Green tea como also by See Jane Knit(etsy)
B Koigu KPM 2236-77 with Koigu KPPPM p623L-380

ROUND 4 ( only one option)
Knit picks Essential solids in Dusk and Cocoa

A. Colinette Jitterbug in colorway Sauguin
B. 100% merino from color way I think is Dark topaz dragon

A. Claudia hand panted yarns in colorway Hawaii
B. Claudia hand painted yarns in colorway (Unknown lost the tag, I'll have to do some searching)

ROUND 7 ( only one option)
Knit picks Felici in colorway Arugula with knit picks Essential solid in Grass

They may not be used in the order they were listed in the supply list; they only tell us a few days before the pattern release which yarn is required. Also, you'll get all the patterns, even if you get knocked out in the first round, so you'll be able to use all your yarn, in any case. Assuming that you actually knit them all after the fact. Many of us had that intention in past years; don't know how many actually did it. Certainly not me!

thanks for the information. I guess I'll have to wait and see which I will need for whichever round when the time comes. Come on hurry up March 19th.

Your sock yarn stash is pretty unbelievable. And your spinning is lovely. Thanks for your comments!
