less than 2gr left
Watching the scale flick between 1 gram and 2 grams as I weigh my left over yarn gives me a great deal of satisfaction. Very efficient use of yarn, eh? Knitting socks toe-up could become addictive for this reason alone. And now that I've had some success with a Turkish cast on I think I can finally stop avoiding toe-up patterns.
I've pulled out some gorgeous Lucy Neatby Celestial Merino for my first pair of Broad Street Mittens. It may seem like an overly luxurious choice but the scarlet colourway is calling me, especially after a week of knitting brown. This yarn was bought with someone in mind; so maybe that person will get mittens for Christmas!
