The Lonesome First Sock Club

Hey Everyone!

I have gotten two socks done using two different colors and different kinds of yarn.

I have one Finnley Heather sock knit up using KnitPicks Palette yarn done as well as one Hollyberry Stroll sock done.

They are both sitting while I make progress on their respective mates.

With the Finnley Heather sock, I have made it longer than the other socks as I am trying to use up as much yarn in one sock as possible. Each ball is 50 grams, and it takes about 30 grams of these particular yarns to make an individual sock. So I would have to buy two balls of yarn to get a pair of socks anyway with the old pattern. Now I am getting way to much extra yarn sitting around, that isn’t enough to make another complete sock on its own. So I decided to lengthen the leg to help use up more of the yarn in each ball.

I usually am only working on one pair of socks at a time, but I wanted to see how the newer pattern worked using the Stroll Yarn and the Palette Yarn so that is why I have these two pairs going at the same time.
