The correct guess would be...

Ok, let me premise this by saying there were a lot of good sock yarn sales this month...seriously, A LOT!

Remember that I want to send my daughter a pair of handknit socks every month she is in college next year...and she will have a jealous roommate who might need a pair now and then.

There were yummy, yummy yarns I longed to try and just ordered them, what can I say?

The number is~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~42!


Well, it WAS my 41st birthday, so there is one for each year plus one to grow on (which is much more fun than a spanking!)

I've tried to choose a variety of colorways, yarns, and variegation to gift to you. It was difficult, but I've ended up with this:

Dream in color Smooshy - November Muse
Araucania Ranco Multi - Color 307
Hill Country Yarns Sweet Feet - Crimson

Alice was the closest with a guess of 44 - Alice, please e-mail me with your mailing address.

Debbi was pretty close with her guess of 39, so I'm sending her this:

Hill Country Yarns Sweet Feet - Be Mine

It seems a few of you underestimated my desire to help stimulate the economy by being a consumer and I so admire the guesses of '51'. Had there been a few extra days in April, I just might have gotten there!

Thanks for playing along and helping me to celebrate my birthday month - you made me smile.

42 is sooo much yarn. :-)

Kristy said...

Damn I missed the contest - - and just when I was really craving some new yarn! :)

42 skeins of yarn is a healthy number. It shows a real love and dedication not only to your craft but to your desire to sustain your craft long term.

I like the new look of the blog. (So maybe it isn't THAT new...but new since I was here last.) Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I was so glad to hear from you.
