Each year during baseball season, I pull out my sock yarn and knit a pair of socks. They are easy to carry to the games and don't make me sweat as much while I
endure cheer on the boys. This year was no exception. My goal is to knit through some of the miles of sock yarn that I have stashed here and there around the house and knit up socks for everyone! I grabbed a manly color and got knitting. Seeing that this sock was meant to be for one of the boys I added a few more stitches and knit a bit longer in hopes of producing a sock that fit. Which it does, no problem! So what then is the problem? Sadly, I don't have enough yarn. I thought I did. I really thought I had another skein. But as I tore through my stash yesterday I only came up with this red.
So, tonight I will rip the sock out, go up from size one needles to size three, keep my standard stitch count and add red on the cuffs, heels and toes. I hope that will solve the problem. At this rate, the baseball socks will turn into hockey season socks.
Wish me luck!
