OTN- Scrappy Socks

I finally got started on my first pair of scrappy socks and I'm loving how they are turning out.  It is such fun not knowing how the next small tidbit of yarn will work up.  Can't wait to finish this sock and begin it's partner.  Since I am a big fan of scrap quilts, this is right up my alley. This might turn into an addiction similar to fabric scraps, which has gotten out of control in my sewing room.  If this happens, just know Carol F that I will have to contact you to see if you have a cure.  lol


Sorry this picture is laying on it's side.  I. couldn't figure out how to rotate the picture within blogger after it was on the blog post.

Check out OTN at Patchwork Times today and see other knitted treats.

  2. Teehee, glad you told us the picture is sideways because I thought that's a mighty big foot! What fun to use up scrap yarn. I assume you have to use all the same weight.

  11. Very neat! And thrifty of you! I love the look but I bet stitching the ends back into the knitting is a pain in the tush. Worth the effort though!

  12. I am starting to get a collection of small balls...left over sock yarn. Eventually I will have to knit my own pair of patchwork socks! They look fun.
