Amazingly, I have some socks to share with you today that are not Christmas socks! I wanted to play around with using some mini skeins in different ways and settled upon a fun color combination.
Let me tell you more about this FO!
For the main color, I used a skein of Hedgerow yarn that I’ve had for a long time – well, since 2018. This yarn is so special and speckled-y. I love it! The speckles are yellow, pink, blue, and green.
When going to search for coordinating mini skeins, I settled upon some from Blush Yarns (the Advent from last year) and Stress Knits, though I can’t tell you colorway names. I wish I’d had a green to add to the mix but, since green has neve been my favorite color, I had none to use.
Because I knew I wanted to stripe the mini skeins, I decided to knit a vanilla sock so the focus would be the wonderful colors. And so I knit these socks on double-pointed needles, using my favorite pattern from Charlene Schurch.
Pattern: Basic Top Down with Heel Flap by Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Hedgerow Yarns High Twist Sock in Meadowsweet; random mini skeins
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)
Made for: me
Time to Completion: 3 weeks
These socks were so much fun to knit! I even went against my OCD tendencies to change up the colors of the heels and toes. And I did both heel turns in the blue.
The results are just too cute! I may have to knit another pair of these socks – and I have enough yarn to do it!
