In Which the Socks Bite Me

I mentioned, a couple of weeks ago, that I had a feeling that Michael’s socks were “going to bite me in the butt.”  Turns out I have Sock Knitting ESP because they did do just that.

I was knitting along on the second sock, all happy with myself for being on the second sock, when I looked at the remaining (hand-dyed) yarn in the skein and had a thought–“Is there enough yarn to finish the second sock?  I’m not sure that there is enough in the remainder of this skein…”

So I had Michael take the first sock to work to weigh it on their super fancy digital scale.  The skein of yarn weighed 127 grams, which meant that if the first sock weighed less than half of that amount I’d be OK.

Half of 127 grams= 63.5 grams.

First Sock = 80 grams.

Awesome.

I hope my tetanus shot is up-to-date.
