Show and Tell: A Tee from Sock Yarn

Dayana (who is also dayana on Ravelry) made a lovely Rowan Fine Art Tee using less than one skein each of Cascade Yarns Heritage Solids & Quatro Colors and Rowan Fine Art. She blogged about it (and a trip to New Orleans) here.

This is what she had to say about it:
This can be a great stash-buster project for partial skeins or even skein scraps. Choose the first stripe to be the yarn you have less of. You can follow the stripe pattern, as is, until it is gone and then finish with all contrast color. Or, feel free to play with the stripes to really maximize the use of your skein over the whole body length. If you are nerdy like me, I’m sure you could weigh the tee at the midpoint (7/7), and figure out how many stripes you can do!
