I’ve been using up what’s left of the wool from the mix and match jumper(s) by making socks. I started off with a yellow pair, then a green and white pair. Then I decided just to knit all the wool up into socks without bothering if they matched or not. I knitted three navy ones, all different shades though it doesn’t show in the photo.
It doesn’t matter if I wear odd socks, nobody can see them when I’m wearing them so why do they need to match? I will just keep on knitting up all the odd balls and as long as they all come out more ot less the same size they’ll be alright – I’m not proud!
Once they’re all sewn up and ready to wear I’m going to renovate all the socks in my sock drawer. Most of them have been darned over the previous darns. I’ll re-knit them all but discard the parts of them that are worn out. I’ll get less pairs of socks out of them but at least the toes won’t all be darned.
That’s the plan anyway.
Talk to you later,
