On the Needles

 I was sitting outside the other evening finishing another pair of reading mitts, enjoying a beverage in a bottle and after ever sip I had to wipe my hand on my pants before I could resume knitting.  Damp fingers and yarn just don't work.   Hmmm I wonder how these reading mitts would fit on the bottle!?!?? 

It fit like a glove or maybe a sock. With the left over yarn from the pink, blue and purple reading mitts I cast on 44 stitches and knit some ribbing then stockinette then decreased 4 stitches as I started the ribbing at the other end and the bottle sock was born. And only 15 inches of yarn left from those 2 balls of yarn.   Isn't that the greatest feeling using up all the yarn??!?!?

Another pair of socks using left over yarn I'm about ready to start the gusset.  I need a little go project for a road trip to the lake next weekend.  Linking to Judy's OTN.  --Ann--

Great idea about the bottle sock!! You sure are industrious and creative! This sock pattern is a great one, too. Another one of your designs?
