I knew I could do it! I’ve pushed to get these done this weekend, but I certainly got bored towards the end. These are my January Mystery Socks for Sock knitters anonymous. I know it is hard to see, but they are beaded through the legs. The beads are a purple color that mimic the flecks of purple/blue in the yarn. This provided me with the opportunity to work my first official eye of the partridge heel and a new toe technique which creates sort of a pinwheel look and requires no kitchener stitch. Yarn is Koigu PPM in painters smock.
A close up of the toe:
Now, in an effort to use up scrap yarn in order to have an ACCURATE record of my stash bust 2009, I ‘ve decided to knit my scraps into scrappy blankets. I started one but am not overly pleased with it. So I decided to do a granny square crochet one instead. But that one isn’t turning out how I prefer either, so I started another with a smaller hook size. This one will be for Bug and incorporate the more girly colored yarns I have laying around. She should just love it!
