Hedgerow Socks

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!

The Yarn

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.

The Pattern 

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.

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!
