A little less than 4 oz. of Maine Woods merino/corriedale roving, spun into a two ply. Approximately 610 yards.
I had some singles left on one bobbin after I finished plying, so I used them to try Navajo plying. I was so excited about this little skein that I took it to work in my purse yesterday and pulled it out squeeze it once or twice when things were stressful.
Pattern: Baudelaire by Cookie A. (summer '06 Knitty)
Yarn: Socks That Rock lightweight (100% superwash merino), colorway Ruby Slippers, one skein
Needles: two 12" US 1 (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: April 18/April 28
Mods: completed only 13 cable crosses on leg; shortened cuff
I used some MacGyver problem solving to finish the first sock. I finished it during my lunch break at work, where I didn't have a larger needle to use to bind off. But I did have my cable needle, which is about the width of a size 3 needle, so I used that. And, of course, I had to do the same to get the second sock to match.
Tomorrow is an unusual fifth Wednesday of the month, so the Hurricane Knitters are having a special bonus knit night. We'll be meeting to have dinner and knit at the Panera at Waterworks starting at about 6:30. Come and join us if you're in the area!
