Well, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I love handknitted socks! I find it very hard to turn down more sock yarn for the shoppe. There are so many great fibers out there to knit into socks. Under hand dyed we have Yarn Hollow's Sock Religious and Panda Cotton, ShiBui's sock yarn, Fourth Coast Fibers sock yarn, Farmhouse Yarn Bo Peep Sock and Fannie's Fingering, Schaefer's Anne, and Mountain Colors Bearfoot. Other sock yarns include Louet Gems fingering, Opal cotton, 6-ply and what I call their regular sock yarn. Also Skacel's Trekking XXL in 6-ply and fingering, Austermann Step, Fortissima, Trekking ProNatura. And don't forget South West Trading Company's Tofutsies. Then we will be adding Misti Alpaca sock yarn, Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Sox, Summer Sox, and TY-Dy socks. Whew! See what I mean. And I don't carry every sock yarn out there.

Plus I enjoy seeing what you folks have done with the yarn you bought from us. Sue sent me this picture. She bought these from us last summer and finished them up just recently.

Who would have guessed that they would have looked like this? Thanks, Sue, for sending the picture to us.
