These Are the Socks that Wouldn’t End


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


  1. I want to see how much sock I can crank out of 100 grams

  2. I hate having leftover sock yarn, especially in this colorway (although it’s growing on me) and

  3. 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.
