1,350 yards
Miss Babs Yowza
2 skeins = 1120.0 yards (1024.1 meters), 452 grams
Maryland Sheep and Wool
the periwinkle sheep watercolors sock 75/25
0.5 skeins = 230.0 yards (210.3 meters), 50 grams

Here are my notes/suggestions on this one:

  • If you can, I would highly suggest using Miss Babs Yowza (or any other large skein of dk weight) and knitting the front and back panels two at a time. That way you don’t have to change your balls of yarn and get a nice seamless front and back panels.
  • Think about how you pick up your stitches. I had a small bit of puckering on one side because I picked up more stitches than I think I was comfortable with (if that makes sense). The other side was perfect because I trusted my gut.
  • Read the instructions a couple of times before you start each section. Sometimes you just have to visualize it before you knit and then you realize it’s not as complex as you thought.
