Sometimes I start a knitting project thinking I’m not gonna like the final result. Usually that leaves me very unmotivated and I frog the project. Same story with these socks. I grabbed three balls of scrap yarn from my (still very big) sock yarn stash and a couple of needles to have a mindless project for Wollefest Leipzig. During the craft fair I got a bunch of compliments for the socks – and with each compliment I started to like them a little more.
I finished a whole pair of socks during the craft fair weekend – all that was left to do when I got home Sunday night was weaving in the ends(my least favorite part about scrap socks!) and the toe seams.
Didn’t they turn out to be gorgeous? I’m definitely a block stripe fan (at least in socks). These socks are a (very late) birthday gift for a friend – I hope she likes them!
