This way lies madness
I want to make more cabled socks, which requires a solid or semi solid. So I would a light purple, a dark purple and a blue. Then I found two variegated skeins that looked like fun AND looked like the socks will go with black shoes, so I would those too.
Then..I have a bunch of yarn from a new company called Woolfolk. The company raises merino sheep to have yarn that feels like cashmere. And it is true! I have two grey skeins for mitts and two grey skeins and a black skein for a hat for Tim (the hat yarn is chained). I have two small blue skeins for something too.
And another purple skein needs some detangling but that is what husbands and football games are for.
