These broken seed stitch socks were going to be the solution to my bag of leftovers. Between this pattern and the scrappy socks vanilla pattern (just switching up odd colors willy-nilly)....I was going to blast through that bag. (ha!!!)
Do you have any idea how little yarn you actually use with these multi-colored socks?
So, I decided it was time for another life-long-never-ending-(although it eventually does)-scrappy blanket project. (Remember???....this is the person who has made !!3!! mitered square blankets.) Strips this time. Who-cares-how-wide strips. Narrow. Wide. Wider. Medium. Whatever I feel like. Whatever fits in the 'travel bag'. Maybe several started at the same time.
(Yes. That bag is FULL. Yes. I knit too much.)
Garter stitch. Miles and miles of it, which lucky for me is one 'pattern' I can knit while I read. (Probably the reason I knit so many 'vanilla' self-striping socks. Probably why there is a glut of leftovers.)
A friend just dropped off this book. I know nothing about it except she said it was fabulous. My yarn and I are ready.
And just for good measure, I started another pair of socks for my hubby that he doesn't need.
