Many knitted socks have generated many small balls of leftover yarn…Rose decided to use some of them up in a new sock pattern…
…first she knitted down to the heel…
…then it was time to choose the next leftover ball of yarn…
This is a very odd pattern…Squircle (a free pattern from Ravelry). Rose is persevering…we’ll let you know if they do eventually turn into socks or end up as just a giant knot.
Good Luck! I hope they turn out beautifully 🙂
Thanks – the luck will be appreciated…also needing patience and trust. So far so good!
It will be interesting to see what comes of all of this pattern. The colors are surely beautiful and Rose knits awfully well.
We have not tried this ‘recipe’ before, and the picture on the website looked interesting! We shall see. There is is a lot of fiddling about, I will see if I like it well enough to make another pair!
I’m sure Rose – and the human- will figure it out. They will be very colourful socks.
We are figuring it out a bit at a time…have pulled out a few rows, but only a few! They will be colourful, and are hopefully going to a member of the family who appreciates oddball colourful clothing!
Oh, that does look odd, and I don’t even knit. Pretty colours, though. Might the socks be ready in time for ScrapHappy Day on 15th?
They very well might be ready for the 15th…if they aren’t a complete flop I will post them. I am knitting both at the same time in the hopes of making them somewhat matching.
I always enjoy seeing what Rose creates with her yarn. I love the colors she joins together.
I normally buy yarn that I think is pretty, so I end up with likeable leftovers…they don’t always go together though. I like the peculiar socks so far!
the colors are certainly delightful…and I bet you wind up with some beautiful socks. You and Rose are so very talented.
It was a spark of adventurousness that I haven’t felt in a while…Rose egged me on, and here we are!
