I finished the single entrelac sock with the Sheep Shop Yarn Company’s Sheep Feet DK. (Shop model)
It’s a riot of color! The sun came out today, so I had to shoot outside to make the most of it.
This is fun yarn to knit with, very springy and smooth. What I really wanted to know: Could I get two socks out of one skein? At 100 grams/218 yards, it looked iffy. And the answer is…
No. At least, not two socks in this size, this pattern. My scale tells me that there were really only 92 grams in this hank of yarn, not sure where the other 8 went. The sock weighs 53 grams. The leftover yarn weighs 39. Even if there were the reported 100 grams, the sock still takes more than half. ‘Tis a pity, because it’s so lovely. Good thing I only needed one. I’m guessing I could get a pair of plain stockinette anklets out of one ball.
Check out the way the colors pooled/flashed on the foot. This is the sole.
And this is the instep.
I like the way the color zigzags; it echoes the zigzag of the entrelac. I don’t know if it would do it again, and I guess I won’t find out, but it’s sweet!
