I've already knit two skeins of yarn into Scott's socks, and had to break into the third today. I used a scale and it was so handy; each cake now has the same yardage. But it really doesn't matter with these socks because I only have about three inches left and won't need all the yarn. It was still fun playing with new hardware :)
Scott tried these on tonight and they fit so well! Did you know his big toe is two and a half inches long?! Giant.
