OTN -April 16, 2016

I've finally finished my sock#1 with the rust/red/brown variegated yarn.  I hope the 2nd sock won't take me as long.   There is no rush now that Spring has arrived, except for the anticipation for my next adventure in sock knitting.

What's the reason I'm so motivated to finish that 2nd sock?  Take a look.  I was thrilled to receive a squishy package from a fellow knitter with some of her sock leftovers; so now I can make some scrappy socks to go along with all my scrap quilts that I love to make.  I can't wait to see how these wonderful variegated scraps will knit up!!  Look at all these fantastic colors, would you.  Thank you so much Carol for making my day.

Here they are dumped out so you could see the bright, fun colors much better.  Doesn't this look like so much fun.  It will be my first experience in adding new pieces of yarn along the way.  Any tips on how to do this easily and securely for socks?

I'm linking up with Judy's OTN party even if I'm a little late. 


  1. Love the sock (red rocks). Great colors for new socks, too. Have fun!

  2. Nice socks! I am almost finished with a very slow sweater.

  3. Bright, bold and beautiful! I love the colors in your sock. You are going to get some more bright and beautiful soccks from the scrappy yarn too.

  4. Hope you have as much fun with the scraps as I do! I finished a scrappy sock over the weekend and cast on a second one... they are kinda addicting... good thing yarn is legal...LOL! happy knitting!

  5. So happy to see you are continuing to enjoy knitting your socks - I'm in love with that RED! And scrappy ones will be so much fun!!! Can't wait to see how they turn out :*)


Thanks for taking time to stop by and visit. It makes my day to get mail - either online or in the old fashion mailbox! Some habits you never outgrow.
