Stash Appreciation Wednesday

So, this may perhaps be a vain pursuit as the semester goes on, but I realized recently that I don't have very many pictures of my yarn stash. Which is too bad, because my stash is pretty awesome and deserves to be drooled upon more regularly.

So here goes: the first installation of Stash Appreciation Wednesday, in which I take pictures of my yarn and talk about how great it is.

Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Sock
Colorway: Rhubarb
Specs: 395 yards, fingering weight
Bought at: The Weaving Works in Seattle, Washington

I had heard a lot about Madelinetosh, and remembered having seen it at The Weaving Works one of the last times I was home. Overall impressions: yarn has a similar twist to Claudia Handpainted, which is one of my favorite sock yarns ever in terms of both knitting and wearability. I love the saturated colors and the yarn itself is insanely soft. This is probably one of the prettiest skeins in my stash - so pretty, in fact, that I almost don't want to knit it up.

.... key word being "almost".

I should be at Smith's tomorrow. I need some more Coryzors in my life.
