I have a bunch of photos to share of Mom’s scarf, but I’ve got a terrible migraine so instead of a long post with project details, here’s just a quick rundown of my plans for today, my day off.
I’d like to finish Yannick’s black & white socks. Last night I snuggled in bed with my knitting and laptop, and watched the latest episode of Supernatural. Now the socks look like this:
Maaike and I are doing A-Sock-A-Month for 2012. (6 pairs for the year). I want another easy-peasy pair to keep in my purse, so am going to cast-on with the leftovers from Mom’s scarf.
It’s the Knit Picks Bare that I dyed a few years ago. I did shades of green, hoping to make it self-striping. I can see from Mom’s scarf that it worked, but am really glad there’s enough left over for me, since I gave the scarf away. 🙂
Once I settled on the couch I didn’t want to get up until it was time to leave to go watch Henri’s class sing him happy birthday. So, being optimistic, I prepared my yarn beforehand.
First I weighed the leftovers.
60g left means I can use up to 30g per sock, plus more if I need from something contrasting. I pulled out the center of the cake until I had 30g remaining.
Finally, to be safe, I weighed one of my current socks that I’m wearing- a hand-knit, toe-up, shortie sock (1″ stockinette before 1″ of ribbing), and it only weighs 24g. So I know I’m safe to make a pair from my leftovers.
