The new flat is colder than the old one and I need to wear socks to keep my toes from freezing. I didn't want to wear my good wool socks indoors, so what's a girl to do but cast on, and cast on, and cast on? Yeah. Three tries and only the last one of them remain intact.
I took the inspiration from the pattern Crazy Stripes, but modified the cuff a little. I made it half height and added a garter ribbing to the side. Then I decided to make the cuff, heel and foot in different sock yarns left over from other socks.
This pair I knit last Winter, but didn't take a photo until now. It's made from bluish green Opal sock yarn that has been ripening in my stash for many, many years.
This pair is also from last Winter. I used Garnstudio Drops Fabel red sock yarn, also from the stash, and black Novita Tico Tico I bought one trip to Estonia.
The reason why the previous attempt at scrap socks failed was that I didn't have enough different colour scraps that went together. Naturally, one has to produce more scraps by knitting more socks. Right?
