You Do The Math

I mentioned that I wasn't sure that one skein of Claudia's Handpainted was going to be enough yarn for a sock...I do, after all, wear size ten shoes. So here are the numbers.

There are supposed to be 50 grams of yarn in each skein. (I say "supposed to be" because the untouched skein only weighs in at 48 grams.) I estimate that I have knit a little more than a quarter of the sock...a little less than a third. I have 35 grams left on the skein I am using.

It's going to be tight.

The one reassuring thing is that on Ravelry all the Claudia Handpainted socks I see have been made out of two skeins...including a pair made for size ten feet.

Keep your fingures crossed for me.

Maybe you should cross your toes . . .

That makes the socks fit funny.

Hey! Hey! I accidentally bought a great pair of smartwool socks that would fit you instead of me, and I can't return them for a variety of reasons. You want 'em? They're all stripey and fun -- I think the color name is wasabi. Let me know, and I will send them your way. (And I promise they're unworn!)

Oh, Erica, you're sweet. But I would only say yes if you let me send you something in return. I know you're trying to get rid of things, but perhaps I could send you something yummy to eat or drink.

Or I could knit you a pair of socks!
