Vicki from Simple knits has a very fun contest on her blog. It's called "What can I knit with 1-285 yards of yarn?" and the idea is to make a huge collection of patterns that call for 1 ball of yarn, or less. Since I tend to buy yarn just because it's pretty i have a lot of single skeins, and I love the idea. I've sent her a link with my favorite sock pattern that uses less then 285v yards of yarn, and I've also donated some stitch markers for the prize. Wanna see?
