I've got almost as much yardage out of three balls of yarn as a roll of toilett paper. See the little holes in the beginning and the end? That's from blocking. Yes, I did block it. Here are the specifics:
yarn: Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK
85% merino wool 10% silk 5% cashmere
3 x 50 g and a little bit of green (in all 450 yds)
pattern: Not-Quite-Straight Scarf by Nicole Hindes
pre blocking: 6" x 73"
after blocking: 5 1/2" x 94" !
These socks, decoratively thrown in the bushes, are for DH. These are made with my compiled toe-up, dutch heel socks recipe you can find under "free pattern" on the side bar. I've washed them and they are so stretchy, they could fit on an Elephants foot! The pattern is Garter rip from the book "Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch. I like the color and hopefully they'll fit.
