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!

    Beautiful socks! I'm impressed how well you got them to match up, given the color blocks – were you knitting them both at the same time?

      Ich muss mir echt noch mal einen richtigen Namen ausdenken, bis jetzt habe ich es nur 'Nadelhöhle' oder 'Nadelschoner' genannt, aber das finde ich ziemlich unattraktiv 😉
      Gerne kannst du mir ein Foto schicken an marie AT froggeddesigns.com. Ich würde mich total freuen!! 🙂
