I picked up this ball of Red Heart Scrubby Sparkle last week because:
It looked interesting
I needed something different to knit
I might actually use it
Following the ball band pattern, I cast 27 stitches onto US #8 needles. I slipped the first stitch of every row to make the edges neater and knit 40 rows before binding off. 90 minutes later I had one finished.
Approximately 6-inches square, each one used about 14 grams of yarn so this one ball should yield about six scrubbies.
The six-row pattern repeat was easy to follow and it looks a bit like cables though it’s not.
The yarn is 100 grams of Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight in Bare handpainted with Easter egg dye by yours truly. I only used 68 grams for the socks so that leaves 32-ish grams leftover. Not enough for a second pair but could be used as cuffs, heels, toes, or something else that I haven’t thought of yet.
These are a tad too long for my feet but I do have someone in mind whose feet would fit perfectly…and would appreciate a pair of handknit socks.
The yarn is a 50g, 90-yard ball of a cotton/acrylic/nylon blend in DK weight. I used almost all eight balls. I have 28 grams left and I wish I would have made a top-down top so I could use every last inch. Alas, that was not the case.
Saturday morning found me weaving in the ends.
And now I can call it FINISHED!
I’m a bit hunched over so you can see the eyelet details but I think I look like a linebacker.
