Carol's Crazy Socks are On the Needles

Oh I am having fun with this idea! I took lots of leftover bits and bobs from other pairs of socks I've made and randomly combined them to create this Crazy sock.


Here's what I started with. There is some Regia, Opal, Blue Moon, Lorna's Laces, Red Heart, some Lion Brand and some I have no idea what it is.


I started by dividing each different leftover yarn into two parts. I used one of those digital diet scales (which has never had food touch it, and probably never will - LOL!) I thought I would need both parts but at the end of this sock I still have enough for another sock. So that means I can probably get 2 pairs out of this selection of leftovers.

I want to play around with this idea some more. I have some black yarn I'd like to combine with some of my wilder leftovers and try a solid purple (I should have some leftover from a pair of socks I made) with some jewel tone yarns. Oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless and I already have tons of yarn to chose from which will make them FREE Crazy Socks!

Happy knitting-
carol fun

  1. What a perfect way to use up little bits of yarn that would never get used otherwise. I love how funky they are!

  2. I love the look of this sock: funky. It also looks like a pretty easy pattern. Where might a sock novice like me find it?

  3. Love your wild socks!! and great idea I thought about using similar leftovers and knitting until one is gone then starting the next. Your method is lots better.

  5. Totally cool socks! This is my idea of the way socks should look, and thank you, you can send them to me as soon as they are done. I'd be happy to test them out for you. :)

  10. I love these socks - I want them! I guess I need to learn/remember how to make socks so I can have leftovers.
