Got a 50 gram sample of sock yarn?

Wondering what to knit with it?

I posed this question to a few Ravelry groups.

Here are a few ideas that Ravelrers suggested [all are Ravelry links].

* Says Ravelry user bcrafter“If you use a lace pattern, 50g/200m is enough for a pair of ankle socks – unless you have big feet :~) e.g. my diamond sock used 56g, and one less repeat on leg would probably look better too. Leaf socks used 280m for a mid-calf sock, so an ankle version would be possible with 200m.”

What’s on your needles?

Let’s be interactive today.

I wanna know what everyone out there is working on at the moment.

Post a link to a blog post, a flickr image, a facebook photo, a ravelry project or whatever and show us all what’s on your needles – of hooks, if you crochet.

I’ve been making some cute hair bands out of dye samples I made a couple of weeks ago, but never posted photos of (slaps self on wrist). And I’m still working on my socks, I’m about to start turning the heels.

To reskein or not to reskein

If you compare these images to those in two previous posts (Colours I may very well attempt to repeat & Colours I will probably not repeat in the future), you can see the difference that reskeining makes.

I’m not sure if potential customers would prefer to see the yarn as it comes out of the dyeing process, or reskeined. What do you think?
