2 skeins = 462.0 yards (422.5 meters), 100 grams

Well, I am changing this project to an UGH because the socks, while they fit my husband perfectly for one wearing, felted after being washed the first time. I’ve never had that problem with Knit Picks yarns before, and in fact he has another pair of Essentials Twist socks that have been good for several years. It must have been bad quality control, but it’s such a disappointment. I want one month of my life back!

I also used the MUMTU sock formula, although I need to remember that Steve wants extra length on his foot before starting the gusset increases. And he likes me to use as much of the yarn as possible so they go up high on his leg. Knitpicks yarn is a winner because it wears so well.

For the yardage count I’m guessing 420 yards.
