The second pair of TopCat Merino/cashmere yarn in the Spring Meadow color way is finished!
I only had a few yards left but I managed to get two pair from one skein!
Toe up socks on 2.5 needles over 60 stitches;  I used the slipped stitches to give it a striped affect on the top of the foot. 
  (One pair of socks are for sized 8 women's and the other was for a 10 1/2)
While I finished knitting it before art class, Caleb and Eli watched a movie while waking up.
Later, I watched Ella ride her scooter but I had to take this photo from FB because mine didn't turn out!  It was a busy but wonderful weekend with the C's and E's!


  1. Wow! That was a generous skein of yarn. Love that color.

  2. I am always surprised by the lack of clothing on your people and then I remember you are down in Florida. It's freezing up here again. All the woollies are on and I still can't get warm. I walked around all day inside in a hat, sweater and shawl. Brrr... March cold is the worst cold.

  3. Love your socks!!!!! 2 pair from a skein is awesome. A weekend with your family...what could be better? NOTHING

  4. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Lovely socks!

  5. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Lovely socks!

  6. It's always nice when you can squeeze two pairs of socks out of one skein. I have small feet so I can usually manage it.

  7. Wow! 2 pair out of one skein is great! Love that yarn color.


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Give it a Try

 I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine; a maiden voyage!   After a few false start, it moved right along-even wit...
