The Jury has returned


Ladies and Gentlemen of the knitting court, may I present to you Exhibit A:
January 025
A Karenina sock.

Exhibit B demonstrates that it fits the intended wearer.
January 023
Now with the assistance of my trusty kitchen scales (which are of approximate accuracy but a great colour) we can convince the jury of knitting fates that this sock:
January 030
Weighs about 40grams.

And the moment of truth – let the remaining yarn be weighed:
January 038
60 grams (ish).

Members of the jury do you find that the gamble has paid off or not?


What do you mean “possibly”, you’re a jury, you get to say yes or no and nothing else in between.

Have you got enough purple?

And that my friends will be the final question; I have enough yarn to make another sock and I have just shy of 30 grams of the purple so all should be well. However, I haven’t tucked in the end at the toe just yet and I may yet have to pull back a bit of the toe and stripe with leftover yellow if necessary but that’s no hardship.

Judicial verdict: victory for Carie and Karenina


I’m going to go and knit a little bit of sleeve now to take the edge off

    I have some Cherry Tree Hill in blue/purple if you get really stuck. It looks nothing like the first photo but very like the second. I don’t think you’ll need it though.

    I love the style of this post, even before the goodness of sock-victory!
