One thing I learned about knitting socks:
it takes about 100 grams for one pair.
No matter the weight of the yarn.
So, if you are traveling,
and you are weird enough
to visit a yarn store while on vacation
(like I am)
you can buy souvenir yarn,
even if you don't have a project in mind.
you could end up with a pair of souvenir socks!
And look what I made with the leftovers:
A coffee cozy!
Mr.'s sister invests in Starbucks.
One tall chai latte, please!
I thought she could use one of these.
I just LOVE the way this yarn knitted up.
I had enough to send another to my pen pal.
Pattern is from
and took me about 40 minutes to make.
It was so easy,
I might make a bunch...
just to use up my leftover yarn.
