Sock Yarn Stash of Epic Proportions

To those (Mary) who are concerned because they may have a shopping bag full of sock yarn I say:
HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHaHAhAHahahahahahahahahahaha . . . cough.

Step One: Admit I am powerless over sock yarn and that my sock yarn has become unmanageable.
Sock Yarn Stash Before
A shopping bag. One single solitary bag. Chortle. Chuckle. Wry smile.

Step Two: Believe that Giant ZipLoc bags can restore me to Sanity.
Sock Yarn Stash Containment?

Step Three: FSM help me.
Sock Yarn Stash Exposed = 92 pairs worth
Lots of Sock Yarn. 92 pairs worth. Queen-size bed included for scale.
It may be worse than I thought, and I may have to leave it here until I can figure out how to organize it – by weight? by type? by color? I counted. It's 22.9 miles. Twenty Two point Nine.

Skip to Step Four: Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of sock yarn stash.
Note, I AM NOT linking to all of these. Let me know if you want to know where they came from.

So, my new hobby, I’m learning how to MAKE yarn.

Important Note: I am making fun of myself, not of Twelve Step programs.

Up Next: Lace Yarn Stash of not epic but still significant proportions.
