I had a really awful week, although I won't go into details here. Let's just say, I did my best to make lemonade but sometimes it's easier said than done. Either way, I tried to make some "me time" this week and it's gotten me thinking about a new project.
About a year and a half ago, in the height of my swapping phase, I swapped some yarn for these mini-skeins. No, these aren't just regular mini-skeins. They're mini-skeins of Wollmeise.
This is back when I had grand ideas of knitting a sock yarn blanket (which has yet to come to fruition). I have a ton of mini-skeins hanging around, some of them really too gorgeous to get rid of and some just eh, and I'm kind of from the school of Waste Not Want Not. A couple weeks ago I decided to weigh my mini-skeins of Wollmeise to see just how much I have and would you believe there's almost 70g of yarn here? And you know what that means: socks. My plan is to do this pair of socks two-at-a-time, toe up; both new techniques for me. I figure this way I can ensure that the foot is the correct length and if I run out of yarn I can shorten the leg.
Now, here's another secret. I have a skein of Wollmeise tucked away in my stash (I know!) so if I really need the extra yarn, I can always wind that up. But I'm not quite ready to break into that skein just yet.
