It was all from one skein. I was really happy with the way they turned out and I LOVED that yarn! There's quite a bit of it left over and I'm knitting a pair of socks for my son now.

Indeed! I was really afraid that I'd be less than thrilled with having to do another sock exactly the same as the first, but, I truly looked forward to it, I just loved making them!

LOL! I missed those dang socks! I thought of my yarn less needles in the bag, and my leftover yarn, my handy measuring tape and crochet hook, my row counter, and my tapestry needle and like started feeling badly for them because I was done with the socks! Man, am I a dork or what?! Needless to say, I'm definitely going to be making more socks!
..been there too!!! there's a name for it PKD...(post knitting depression)!!!!!!! ha ha!!! A very wise (older) friend of mine always said "always have 3 projects going at once"...and "knit on Sunday rip out on Monday" she always had "3" projects going at once and never never knitted on Sunday

those are great. I have never tried socks yet, but you are making me want to because it sounds like it was a very fun and rewarding project for you.

They are definitely gratifying! You can get them done so quickly and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed making them!


GirlChris, You've gotta try them sometime...I put it off for over 2 years and I really wish I wouldn't have. They were super easy to do, and, still challenging enough to not make me bored with them...lol
