Phew - I finally finished the Dead Simple Lace Socks which meant I could start the scrappy ones!! Woohoo!!
I began by gathering my supplies.....
I admired the basket of cute little yarn cakes for a while!!
Then I closed my eyes and picked out the first ball.
I wanted them to be random, something I find very difficult indeed, although I did use the same yarn at the same time on each sock.
I knit about 10- 12 rows with each ball and I love that even though I was using the same yarn, because of the self patterning-ness the socks look related but odd.
I read a little while I was knitting, which is probably why some yarns got 12 rows, and after a few days they were finished....
I love them! I have since bought 3 balls of sock wool thinking 'ooh, that would make a lovely stripe in a scrap sock' so it isn't quite the using up the leftover bits and bobs project I had in mind :)
What do you use your leftover scraps for?
