Here is the Money Shot-
The Peppercorn Blend Socks I used all but .10 of an ounce of DK weight yarn from Spritely Goods in the Peppercorn Blend colorway. This yarn is very silky to the hand - a little splitty on the Knitpicks needles, but probably would not be a problem on bamboos. I loved knitting away and suddenly coming to one of the very bright red sections of yarn.
This is what I had left - .10 of an ounce on my little scale. I kept weighing it as I was knitting the foot repeats, thinking I couldn't possibly have enough yarn.

Eighteen days left, and do you know what I want?
I want some Suri Merino from Blue Sky Alpacas. I mean, admit it, doesn't even the name sound delicious? Ali over at Skeins Her Way is having a contest and giving some of this away. I entered, but I dont care, come July 15 I am SOOOOO ordering a big old pile of this. I like all three of those colors up above. Seriously, I am stomping my feet, pouting and saying (in my head and heart), "But I WANT it!!!!"

I gotta go visit Chaos and Mayhem now for my daily dose of kitty cute. See you later gators!

Comments:
Those socks turned out very nice...and you have TON of yarn left over. Although I do hate that feeling as you are knitting along wondering if you are going to run out or not.
 
Those are great socks! I bet your shopping list is pretty long.

Aw, I'm glad you like to visit us!
 
Are you wanting to fill the stash again? Of course if you win it in a contest, it doesn't count as stash. :D
 
I'm not big on 'red' but I like how that yarn turned out. Excellent job, Ms. G.
 
I love the socks but I also love your sock blockers. I'm tempting fate but can you tell me where you got them?
 
i love the haycorn sock blockers!
