When I'm knitting I like to use
fingering weight yarn :
a lot of stitches on a fine needle.
( Don't make thick sweaters anymore nowadays :
with central heating you don't need them
and outside the ever present wind blows through ! )
I've used different brands of "sock yarn" for the socks I knitted,
a 100 gram skein is enough for a pair of socks
up till quite big !
For my size I mostly use up about 60 (+) gram
so that always leaves me with "one sock" leftover yarn ...
The blue socks of my favourite Regia yarn
( two 50 gram skeins )
were finished and I had about 20 g left of each skein
What to do with thát ?
Since winter is coming I had a good idea :
for fingerless gloves ( mitts ) it should be just enough ( I hoped )
pffffft, ... glad I was right
( when you see what was left ! )
Which only leaves me with a little bit more knitting to do
to finish the second one !
( Won't do any cables in this kind of self striping yarn anymore
it's hardly to be seen )
