sock yarn stash?

Hello?! Where are you? Huhu?!! sock yarn stash!???
Sadly, this is the rest of my sock yarn stash(missing:two skeins stored safely away for swaps):

I think I've knitted a lot more socks than I can remember, how else could you explain my sock yarn leftover stash?

Actually in some/most of these is enough yarn left to knit another pair, but I don't really like to knit two matching pairs and so these are kept to make a big Patchwork blanket someday.

Lolli also asked some questions:
Do you have certain patterns planned for some of the yarns? Do you buy yarn and then choose a pattern?
No, not really. I buy sock yarn when I see one I like, I don't think about any pattern at all. Mostly because I seldomly knit patterned socks ;-)

Does a certain sock yarn you have in your stash take you back to a certain event? (where you were when you bought/received it? what was going on in your life at the time!)
hmm, not that I remember right now. I still know when and where I got most, but I guess there was nothing special on these days...but then my memory is pretty bad event-wise anyway.

pWhat a great idea for the sock yarn! I had thought about making stripey socks or something with my leftover, but the quilt is an excellent idea..I may have to borrow it one day!

Look at all that sock yarn!! Yeah, I have a bunch of leftovers, too. I keep saying that I'm going to make my daughter some socks. I like your idea better, though.
