... how my fiber sample yarn would look like knit up. Now I know. I put everything aside, and cast on for socks. Normally 291yds would not be enough for socks for my size feet, but this is worsted weight yarn, so I guess I will be alright. I'm using 4mm needles, and it's not too loose. I measured the WPI again, and it gave me clearly 11 WPI.
I'm going to put this sock on stitch holders, knit the second one up to the same length, and see how much yarn is left for both legs. If they are just ankle socks, that will be fine too. They are thick and warm, and I love them. :o)
I would love to have them longer up the leg though.Have you ever seen that rare breed of dogs, which have a horn on their forehead? Biko likes to be scratched around it, it seems to be itchy all the time. :o)
Oh yeah, I had a woolen accident. I was washing all our winter woolies the other day, in my machine with the hand wash option. All went fine, nothing felted or anything. I took it out, and put some white laundry in. When I got that out, I found this Chevalier mitten, felted to the size of a mitten for a seven year old child. What am I going to do? If I can find the same yarn in my stash, I might knit the left mitten again. But I don't want to! It's so fiddly, even though I love how they look, you need to look at the pattern all the time. Maybe I just knit DH a pair of new ones. I don't know yet.
