Junkyarn Socks

I need to knit so many socks to make a dent in my stash!  Oh my goodness!  When I recently wanted to cast on some socks that I knew would make me happy, I turned to a skein of yarn from Junkyarn.  And I was right; these socks made me so happy every time I picked them up! 

Here’s the story…. 

The Yarn

When Kemper of Junkyarn came out with her monthly series of yarn based on Pretty Guardians, I was immediately floored by the colorways.  I had no idea what Pretty Guardians was (it’s a manga series and Japanese television show) but Kemper’s colors were amazing!  And then, when this one came out, Serenity and Endymion, I knew I had to have it.  

(Since purchasing this skein, I may have also bought a few more that will make stunning socks!)  

The Pattern 

I used my favorite pattern from Charlene Schurch for these socks.  These were the first pair of socks I knit using two circular needles and I consulted videos from The Crazy Sock Lady to figure out just how to do this technique.  And I really enjoyed it!

This yarn was so much fun to knit with because the colors are just amazing!  For the heel, I did my favorite Eye of Partridge pattern.  And I just adore how it looks!  

I have enough of this yarn leftover to potentially do a pair of shortie socks.  How am I going to use up my stash if I keep wanting to knit with leftovers?!
