it's a pair!!!

...of mini mochi's!

mini-mochi in strawberry-lime rainbow (#106)
knit as a toddler sock to show one repeat of the colors
i cheated (was told to call this a design feature) and used the opposite end of the ball for the heel flap so that you can see the lovely color transitions on the instep.


and the wrister i posted earlier.

oh! they are suppose to be two of the same thing and they're suppose to match! dang! maybe you all will take pity on me as i knit these as samples and i knit so slowly that this may be the last you will see from me. besides, there is not enough yarn left to knit a second of either thing... SOB!

can you believe that they each used 22 grams of yarn? or 171 yards should this count...please?!

leave a comment on whether you think this should count for kal entries or not. who knows what we might use to draw a winner for another prize...hint! hint! time is drawing near!!!!!!

You certainly should count it! Very beautiful :)

I keep track of the books so NO. You will only have a start not a finish. You will cheat to get your way won't you.

we live in a democracy. let the bloggers vote! :P

and your vote doesn't count.

I think they should count, too!! For two reasons: because they're beautiful, and there are, after all, more than one of them; and because that way I can count the two individual socks that I just finished test-knitting for two separate patterns (right?). ;)

Well, if you gave the toddler sock to a child as a sock to wear over a cast, it would be considered a finished project, and the wrister was for someone who only needs one, then it, too, would be considered a finished project, wouldn't it? Even easier, unless the company wants only a full pair of each for samples, then if one is good enough for them, it should be good enough for us! In other words, yes!

I think the fingerless mittens are beautiful, and so are the socks.

I'm not going to judge weather they will count or not...that is for the judges to decide.

adrienne said...

you need to vote bianca because it's debi and me deciding whether these should count.

the company only needed one of each as a sample. so i am done, right?

adrienne said...

go, annie! yes! samples! only needed one!

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Well... then it will be a mini mochi mini Christmas stocking...LOL! You posted a progress picture, and a finished picture. ;-) Then it can count...

Since you meet the yardage requirement and if Michael Jackson can wear one glove, so can uh, Crystal Palace's hand model. Hee.

Cathy said...

I think they should count! The rules say you can submit a "set of items" and this is your set of items... test knits that only require one each!! Plus, as others have stated - they're beautiful! Nice work!

counts

rita said...

Yes, they should count. When I have to wear a wrist support, I wear the beautiful wrister that I made just for that! It took all of 180 yards, too.

By the way, is that wrister pattern available? I haven't read down the page yet.

adrienne said...

wrister pattern will be available when mini mochi is officially released. right now, the pattern is in my head...and debi says that is a dangerous place to be. grin

Aunt Kathy said...

I vote to count them too. I really like how this yarn works up.

I think it should count if any other questionable entries would count. I mean why not let everyone get a second chance. Especially since there are so many fast knitters mixed in with us slow froggers. And Day of the Dead contestants who are too slow to finish a pair of socks and have made 4 1/3 pairs total!
