Finished Object

above-the-knee socks

While I'd been calling them knee socks in the sidebar, they are really above-the-knee socks. They're based on a pattern from the winter issue of Vogue knitting.

Now I have to wait for the yarn store to open so I can return the extra ball of yarn. I originally bought two 100g balls of yarn for the project. Then I got the idea into my head that this wouldn't be enough, and I couldn't shake it. I used the pattern to calculate how many stitches per sock, weighed my progress up to that point to find how many stitches to the gram, and determined that it would be close. But as knitting is the hobby of the neurotic, you know I had to go and buy more yarn.
