After I knit these booties, I searched Ravelry to see what I could do with the left over yarn. I came across this quick and useful project.
Pattern: Water Web (free) by Amie Gavin Glasgow
Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic
Color: Blue 3818
Needles: US 6 DPNs
One thing that threw me a little about the pattern is the use of the asterisks in row 1. They are used instead of quotation marks to emphasize this part of the instructions, not as an indicator to repeat the actions contained within. I didn't realize that at first and kept wondering why I couldn't get the stitches to work right. It took me a while to figure it out, but after that everything went smoothly including the decrease section.
I ended up using every inch of left over yarn, so naturally I needed to replace it with more.
A stash of Tahki Cotton Classic is born!
