Mind the Gap

I was lucky enough to get some of this yarn which is very popular and usually on pre-order at Trailing Clouds.

This is a self-striping sock yarn, which means it will pattern in to bold, colourful stripes as you knit. I am not one for matching socks and usually the pattern just rolls off the needles but for these I think it will be good to have 2 matching socks. This means planning with the winding as I will need 2 x 50 g balls wound from 1 x 100g skein.

Words of wisdom from Gloria at Trailing Clouds:

“in 100g, there are 8 repeats of the 12 stripe sequence, plus 4-6 additional stripes. This means you can wind off two matching balls of 4 repeats each, if you want to knit two socks at the same time. Each stripe rather conveniently weighs 1g, so you will yield just over 100 stripes in each skein”

So when shall I start winding…..
