Knitting for Cheapskates: $6.34 Socks

Sometimes you just don’t have a lot of money to spend toward a project. Luckily, it’s absolutely possible to knit nice things on the cheap.

These socks were inspired by my being broke, curiosity about the yarn, and AC Moore having this particular colorway on sale. $3.17 per skein for 70% wool? How could I resist?

Pattern: Wendy’s Generic Toe-Up Socks
Yarn: Red Heart, Heart and Sole in watercolor stripe
Needle: US 1

I found the yarn to be a little splitty, but otherwise it was okay to work with. There were no knots, no random bits of stuff, the colors are even throughout, all was good. The two skeins were wound in opposite directions, which I thought was funny. I wasn’t aiming for identical stripes, but rewinding wouldn’t have been a problem if I was.

Here they are, washed and dried and very comfy.
