Last night I finished the socks I’ve been designing for Robyn’s Robyn’s Nest November Sock Club kit. I was worried at the end there…look how much yarn I had left over:
Luckily I was knitting the largest size, so I’m not worried about the other sizes having enough, but wow, was it close! All I kept thinking was how thankful I was I hadn’t added a few extra repeats of the pattern, as I’d been considering! (Oh, don’t adjust your monitors. I turned the photo into black & white so as not to give away anything about the yarn or the colorway).
Since that photo is rather boring on its own, I’ll share some I took this afternoon of the Summer Lace Shawlette. I’m going to give it to my cousin tonight, so I unpinned it and took a few photos before wrapping it up.

Even though it’s stressful, I love when I finish something with only a little left. Otherwise I feel like I have to come up with a project to use the leftover yarn, which usually requires buying more yarn, which is then leftover at the end and requires coming up with a new project, etc. As you can see it’s a vicious cycle.
The shawlette looks lovely. I wish I knew someone who would wear it that I could make it for.
