I found this pair of socks tucked into a bag earlier in the week. The first sock was done and the second sock was almost to the toe. A little knitting time later....ta dah! Another pair of scrappy socks!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE making socks like these. I collect little bits and bobs and balls of leftover sock yarn, group colors I like together, divide what I have in half -- I have one of those little diet scales to weigh the yarn--- and start knitting. Now I try very hard not to make them match in any way but this pair has two sections - one on the leg and another on the foot where I used the same yarn in the same place. Totally accidental, as I didn't have the first sock with me when I was knitting the second sock. This the third pair of these scrappy socks I've made and there will be lots more to come.
On the needles is another pair of BIG black socks for my oldest son. I won't bore you with a picture. And the socks I want to start is this pair - check it out here on Ravelry. It is a free pattern - don'tcha love free? I've never done mosaic knitting before but my friend, Cathy, is going to show me how. I can't wait.
Happy knitting -
