Now that I’ve typed that out it looks weird because it’s not really for a baby. It’s just a shortie sock. But I like the sound of it! I finished the socks I’d been working on (I need to get good photos before I share them) so of course I had to cast on a new sock immediately, right? I visited my stash and grabbed the pretty half skein of Show Me Yarn in Girl Power. I didn’t want it to go to waste, so my goal is to get two complete shortie socks from it. I probably
should could have weighed the yarn first and then again after the first sock but…well, I’m living on the edge with this project. And really, since I got two full socks out of the first half, I feel pretty confident.
I’m adding gray cuffs and toes to hedge my bets, and I love how the stripes worked up after the heel on the first one! It’s a perfect continuation of the stripe pattern. Now I just hope I can get something equally delightful in the second sock. How many of you try to get a second pair of socks out of one skein of sock yarn?
I adore these! I’ve never tried to get a second pair out of one skein, but now I want to try.
Wait until I finish my experiment first!
So much fun! I usually go for a matching pair of mitts instead of a second pair of socks, since they use less yarn.
That’s a great idea!! Thank you!
Great idea! Love the bright yarn too
I’ve just started! I wear a size 7 shoe, so always have a ton of yarn left after socks.
Oh, that would be nice. I have big feet (size 9.5 usually) so I typically have a weird amount left, not enough for another pair of socks but too much to waste!
I have a 10 stitch blanket on the go, but I have lots of leftover. I’m doing socks now from little amounts, it’s a broken seed stitch sock. That may work well for you, and its pretty.
