In the past couple of weeks, I was reminded the hard way, to pay attention to yardages of Yarns when I am looking at buying them for specific projects. I had bought some yarn that I haven’t used much (like once before), and had gone by weight rather than yardage. I found out the hard way, with about 2/3 of the second sock knit up when I ran out of yarn. I am waiting on more to arrive so I can finish this pair of socks, and knit up another pair of the same color. To put it out there, that unless you are making ankle socks for a woman, or socks for kids, you will need two Hanks of KnitPicks Hawthorne Fingering yarn.
While I have been waiting on more yarn to come, I have knit up another pair of socks. I finished this pair today.
I used KnitPicks Palette yarn in Tea Rose.
With the holidays over, and work calming down, I have had the time to get back to knitting. I missed it so much the past few months. I am definitely trying to get more projects done.
While working as a retail stock crew member is not a career for me, the past few months have reminded me of what I am capable of doing, and what I do want to be doing with my life. Hard work, early mornings, early nights, working with my hands and making tangible things.
