At the End of My Yarn

Oh, dear. I’ve run out of yarn and I still have half a foot to knit! I’m having bad luck, aren’t I?

Diamond Shreddies - no foot

The socks are Diamond Shreddies by Carrie Van Kessel, and they were the round 3 socks from Sock Madness 8. You may remember I had to drop out of Sock Madness this year because of my knitters/tennis elbow. Thankfully, it is feeling a little better right now, and so I’ve been sock knitting again. Unfortunately, these socks took more yarn than I expected.

The good news is that I have another skein of this yarn, in the same dye lot. Yay! The bad news is, that skein is currently in my in-laws basement, and I won’t see it again until after we move in August. Ugh. It seems like everything I’ve been looking for in the past couple of weeks has been packed up and shipped off to their basement. Our moving day can’t some soon enough.

Look at that cable, though. These socks will be well worth the wait.

    What a shame, those are really beautiful socks! Still, better than running out altogether, I suppose…

    Great looking socks Heather. Sorry about the yarn but at least you do have another skein.


  4. Your socks look exactly like mine! I used Cascade Silk Heritage for mine and love them! The pattern is great and fits well. Yours look lovely! Hope you get to finish them soon! 🙂
