We had a sample ball in the store so she took it to the cottage last weekend. She used the Easy Peasy Socks for First-Timers pattern (free on Ravelry). There was about 15grams of yarn left over after knitting the sock.
These socks are designed with the first-time sock knitter in mind. Sock knitting can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. All you need to be able to do is work in the round, decrease and pick up stitches, and you can make these socks!Now she knows. She can get a short pair of socks out of 2 balls and a taller pair will take 3 balls.
We have a really big problem now. That colour is discontinued. Either we find one in the odd ball bag or she is going to have a pair of mismatched socks.

Dimensions (in open position): 50cm x 30cm (20" x 12")We have a new episode of The Big Bang Theory tonight. Beth has watched every episode. I came to the party later. The show is really funny. Even episodes you've seen before. You can watch them over and over. I must admit that Sheldon is my favourite. There is a bit of paperwork to do before it starts so I need to run.
