My first pair of socks from the Moda Vera grey colourway - the topsy turvy socks - weighed in at 60g. I still have several skeins of this yarn.
I picked up some of this yarn in a clearance sale for $2.99 per 100g skein. I still have 40g of the first skein left. That's ten pairs of socks from six skeins!! Or, given that I paid $4.99* for the first two skeins and $2.99 for four more [a total of just under $22], that's ten pairs of hand knitted, wool/nylon socks to warm the feet of those less fortunate for just $2.20 each! More feet kept warm is always a good thing! Just pray I don't get bored with knitting all that stocking stitch. [There'll be more complicated patterns in other yarns along the way to break up the monotony].
*Sock yarn generally sells for $12+ per 100g skein
