A blogiversary prize (and more resolutions)

Another of my knitting resolutions is to not buy any more sock yarn.
Here is the current sock yarn mountain sock yarn 034
Can you guess how many pairs of socks I can make from the above yarn?
To celebrate my second blogging aniversary I will gift a skein (or two skeins if needed to make a pair) of your choice from this stash to the person/people closest. I'll pick a winner on Wednesday 9th January (a week from today.)

Ooh I thought I had quite a bit of sock yarn, but yours is definately a mountain. I am going to guess at about 80 pairs. Good luck knitting up all those pairs of socks.

I've just started knitting socks... well I started knitting sock. Since I have only completed one and that was months ago.
That doesn't stop me from buying sock yarn though. lol

My guess is 59.

(I deleted my last comment as I had said the same as caednkat!)

Ok I think it's 49... and that you should join the Socks From Stash Club!

I reckon 60 :) I too am not buying any sock yarn this year as I have too many lovely skeins that deserve to be knitted up.

55 pairs of socks...by the way, I'm a first time commenter looking for blogiversary contest ideas. Your blog was the first hit! My blogiversary is coming soon, so I wanted to do the same with my stash. Thanks for a good idea.

Happy New Year!
My guess is 52 pairs. I think I've got some of the yarn in my stash too!

54 Is my guess although not my first choice but it was already taken.

natalie said...

63 pairs, plus multicolured ones from all the third-of-a-skein left overs, so if you're including that too, 90.
