My April Entry

Here are my April socks. They are made with left over Opal yarn (the same I used to make my Lacy Trellis socks earlier this year). These are done in the Butterfly Rib pattern.

I know they aren't identical twins (the one on the right was made first), but that is because I was forced to wind the yarn in a ball by that time and the colours became backwards - naturally. Also, had I tried to start with the same colour pattern, I would have wasted half of what I had left, and then there would have been no second sock. As it was, I was worried that I wasn't going to have enough yarn left to finish the second one; but, as you can see in the picture, there was a little bit left...not much though. So, a 100g skein of Opal yarn made 1 pair of adult sized socks, and one children's sized pair of socks.

The legs on these are only 3" long, so it is a shorter pair, but that's ok. Had I made them the normal 4" length I usually do, there is no way I would have had enough yarn to finish the second sock.

It's good to get two pair from one skein, but yes, it's pretty much not gonna happen that the kid's pair will match!
