    the kit is wonderful I love the color for Bees Knees socks , I notice the pattern is for toe up, but I feel more comfortable with cuff down patterns so I will make adjustments. So the 2 hanks are enough for the knee length? How many yards in each skein? G.

      The pattern includes instructions for both toe up AND top down. Use whichever method works best for you 🙂
      The yarn skeins are enormous with 560 yards each! You will have more than enough to make the knee socks, and maybe even enough to make a pair of calf high socks too.
