I made my 1st yarn purchase for 2009. As we all know sock yarn does not count as stash. Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock - '09 Jan. - New Years Lights. I would start a sock for the Knitting on the Lake retreat.So I wound it up and then pulled out the under the bed (really it is under the couch) storage container to see what other sock yarn I needed to wind up. This was just in case I did not use the Lorna Laces. It is a fingering weight and I have never used that light a weight before.
