Pushing the Yardage

Posted in Knitting at 6:59 pm by Jennie

Just to keep things a little interesting for me, I thought I’d see how far I could go. I have one cake, just a mere 50g ball of a color I really like. I have small feet, so I was thinking, since I know I can crank out a pair of footies with one 50g ball, what about actual socks? Ya know with cuff + leg + gusset + heel + foot + and toes. I’ll see how far the yardage will take me. Stats about the yarn I’m using will be disclosed at a later date, I’m sort of devising a game plan with it (possible contest in the near future). Here’s my progress so far… I’m really liking the colors a lot.

    gah! so unfair that you’re hiding the yarn name 😉 actually, i think you emailed me the name of it a while back. i’m going to be looking through my emails now because seeing it knit up is causing some major yarn coveting in me!

    good luck with the socks 🙂 i’ll send some yarn stretching vibes your way 😛

    Trish: I can’t stop knitting with it, I love seeing how the colors turn up and seeing the different combinations.

    kris: I must agree here, now I kinda want to get me some more. 🙂

    Dooh zehava you’re gonna kill my possible contest. If you find the info, mums the word. Hehe. Oh and thanks for the vibes, I hope it all works… *crossing fingers*

    ooooooh nice color. That’s right up my alley. I think I could probably get stocks for me out of 50g. You should see how much left over yarn I have from my first pair.

    What a great color! I agree with Zehava – I’m feeling a stong urge to find that yarn! I hope you have enough for your socks.
