One sock

Next challenge - make her an identical twin. She weighs 44g ... and I have located the position of the yarn to start already ... the remaining ball starting from that point weighs 45g! So, it's possible!

Have a wonderful weekend ... Happy Knitting!

One whole gram to spare? *laugh* Nothing like trying to cut it close.

Wow, that was fast! Looks great!

You must knit like the Tazmanian Devil Agnes! That was FAST! And so pretty!

What short row heel do you use?

You knit faster than anyone I know, Agnes!! You always amaze me. Your sock looks wonderful- can't wait to see the completed pair! Take care and have a great weekend! :-)

Wow, you're sure a speedy knitter - envy, envy :)
Looking forward to see the completed pair - considering the fact how fast you knit, we might probably already see a pic of it today?

Haha, Agnes, you're so perfectionist with the striping socks! I am so intrigued as to how you can determine the exact position of the yarn to start with.

The sock looks great and I learned something about making an identical sock mate. I would have never thought of weighing sock & yarn to be sure I had enough - Brilliant!

It looks great! I admire your bravery attempting sock 2 with 1oz to spare!

I am always amazed by the precision of your work!

One sock done already and I haven't even started my next blog post. See? :-) Like the way the stripes turned out.

I'm working on the second sock of a pair for my daughter with this same yarn--I agree with your thoughts in the earlier post. It'd be better without the brownish part, but the blues & green win out! I like LB Magic Stripes, too. It makes a nice, sturdy sock that's just soft enough to be snuggly.
