christmas socks

I've just finished my first pair of socks to be gifted for Christmas... for my two cousins who have been asking for socks for ages. Just have another pair to do, with about 10,000 other things too, lol.

Hi Nikki,

I'm also an avid knitter and my stash is still growing! I really enjoy reading your blog - the Christmas socks look fab. How do you get the stripes to match so perfectly?

I've also been wondering how you measure the miles you've knitted - do you add up the length of yarn you've knitted or do you measure the knitting itself?

Hi Heather,

I use knitmeter.com to get the mileage after I've weighed the yarn to work out how much is left. Its great watching the totals jump!

The colour repeats in that yarn are easy to match, just was a bit tricky for the toe of the second sock so ended up cutting the extra pink and attaching the next colour.

Glad you enjoy the blog!
