Answer: I have no idea! I was able to get about four miters out of one skein of Tahki, but I was using two colors. I usually stuck two yarn cakes in a ziploc and was off.

That's it. Time for a nap. ;-)


Re: toe up socks pattern conversion. I have only done this once (and messed up the heel so it didn't fit), but essentially, depending on the actual pattern, you would work from top to bottom instead of bottom to top of the chart. I know I saw a pomatomus sock on a blog that was worked toe up without working the chart differently because it didn't actually make difference in the outcome. If you work it top down AND backwards, you'd get a mirror image - good for some sock patterns if you want the two socks to be mirror images. Hope that makes sense.


I just love your blog! Yarn, socks, travelling--what more could a girl want????


I remember asking Wendy (of Wendy Knits) about doing toe-up, as I'm totally the opposite - I adore cuff-down but wanted to try toe up once, just once (ahem, it just **might** have been for your sockpal socks, my dearest, which I totally chickenshit'd out on actually doing in that way when push came to shove) and she said to "flip the chart upside down" - I don't think you'd need to do it backwards, just work from the top of the chart down - but keep working from right to left. At least that's what I think.

I'm getting much less fussy about all of this sort of thing in my old age {32} - okay, in my middling age - these days I just start knitting and see if it works or not. And if it doesn't I rip and redo. After all, knitting is knitting is knitting, right?

Your Loving Sockpal

p.s. OMG. You know Cara enough to actually, like, call her Cara & ask her questions????????? Dude. She's, like, FAMOUS.


driving with teens, you should be able to do whatever you want to get through it. knit? you'd probably f it all up and knit too tight. i have a 17 y/o brother and he just started driving and it totally trips me out...good luck with yours.
