I’ve counted and sorted and am considering my queue & library for sock patterns – I’ve got 58 skeins in that box – Ikkinlala was the closest with 57! You win the book since your guess was in first – I’ve sent you an email – look for it! and Breanna guessed 58! I couldn’t find your email on your blog – drop me a line at nutmegknitter AT gmail DOT com please and we can get your prize on it’s way to you!
Wow. So yeah, I don’t need any sock yarn this year I guess. Even if I could do something like the 52 pair plunge that still wouldn’t use up my yarn! 🙂 Maybe that’s ok. I really want to make more socks – Obviously I have a great collection started, and some of my older handknit socks are showing wear.
I knit up a hat last night – the baby hat from One Skein – I used up a skein and a little bit more of this great Cascade Cotton Rich – I used #3686 – it’s like a hot pink with one strand of a purple in there – very pretty. The downside is, the hat came out way bigger than the 12-18 month size I thought I was making. It’s still cute and functional though – it’s a charity hat. Someone will love it (I hope).
