I'm a tad obsessed...



With what you ask? The REIMS STOCKINGS pattern...LOL! Mostly it's because I almost have the pattern memorized and it's an easy knit when you do that...can just keep knitting without referring to the pattern charts all the time. I quite enjoyed knitting this one - the colours came out quite fun. Photos are of each side of the sock since the colours came out slightly differently on both.

Have you started knitting with Flaming June yet?

I haven't started with Flaming June (love that name) because I have another sock project that is crying out to be finished first. I'm not good with more than one project going at any one time. I love the way your socks look. I had some major pooling with the Iris colorway with the Fools Rush pattern so I'm looking for something else to use for that. I love those colors.

I haven't looked at your comments on Revelry yet, but how much yarn did you have left over from these socks? I like mine longer and was wondering if the pattern and yarn combo would be enough :) I love the way the colors came out on yours.

Thanks!

Hi Jules...I've only done one sock but the yardage is 450 for the merino/bamboo/nylon and the Reims pattern calls for 375 yards (~3.2 oz) for the full-size version (I did an ankle mod) so you should be great going a bit longer if you want to! The skein weighs about 4 oz so weigh your sock as you go and you'll know if you have enough left for sock #2 at the same length. Hopefully that makes sense?

Perfect, thanks! I really like the pattern and yarn combo, so I think I'll give it a go. I don't have a scale but I heard you can take it to the post office :)

Sure! Any scale will do and theirs should be pretty accurate since it measures the weight of the mail. Ohhhhhhhh, can't wait to see your socks too :) I really had fun watching the colours come out with this one.
