I’ve been frantically trying to finish my first pair of SOS2007 socks but the yarn just keeps going on and on and on. By now I can do the Monkey in my sleep! People have been turning in finished pairs left and right in the Flickr group, and the blog round-up for the first week is just overwhelming. So much sock-knitting going on! :)
The thing is, I’m determined to finish the entire ball of yarn on these socks. I could just decide that the cuff is long enough and bind off. But I’m not gonna because I’m sort of stubborn that way. I want to use the entire ball because
I want to see how much sock I can crank out of 100 grams
I hate having leftover sock yarn, especially in this colorway (although it’s growing on me) and
I want to make knee-highs someday and I’m curious to know how much yarn I’d need (see #1).
Off to knit some more now. There’s still a couple of hours of knitting time left this weekend.
