I have been doing a bit of Summer Knitting in an effort to bust the sock yarn stash. I pulled all the self-striping yarn and put it in a basket near my spot in the living room. With self-striping yarn, one doesn't need to get fancy, just let the yarn do the work. The first pair of socks were knit with an afterthought heel from Melody Johnson @ Fibermania. It does give a different look to the sock, doesn't it?
I am not happy with the second pair of socks at all. No sir-ee. I changed NOTHING from one sock to the other and look at what the pink does on each sock.I wonder if the colors were a bit longer on one of the skeins. But done is done so I am not ripping it out.
And then there is this lovely! I used sock yarn to knit up this smoke ring/cowl scarf in a feather and fan pattern. These scarves are so wonderful to wear as they stay on like a necklace.
