The magic number is........

I counted three times just to make sure I had the number right. I even thought about asking my husband to count for me but I wasn't sure that was such a good idea ;o) SABLE comes to mind or warm feet for the rest of my life, however you look at it.

397 - Yes that is right almost 400 skeins/hanks/balls of sock yarn.

1st prize - Jessica, who guessed 397. I think we should call her the Rain Man of sock yarn.
2nd prize - Andrea, who guessed 395. Yes this is the Andrea who laughed about my 50 skeins of sock yarn.
3rd prize - Knit'in Crazee, who guessed 390.

Thanks everyone for playing. I had fun reading your guesses. I think I should go and cast on a couple more pairs of socks to use up some of this stash ;o) Check back soon I will be posting the details of my new pattern.

Holy Cow! That's a lot of yarn! Congrats to the winners! And Dawn, now that the first step of admitting you have a problem is over, there are quite a few of us out here who would love to help you with that second step!

I was close, but too high. I'm glad out fellow CKW knitters won, though. So you're down to 394, now right, since you gave away those 3 as prizes. Good start! :)
