These socks were never entered into as a project on ravelry, so I’m not quite sure when I started them… sometime in October or November of 2008, I think. And I took these photos on 22 May 2009, so I probably finished them either that day or the night before - I’m usually pretty good about getting photos of socks right away (not so much with sweaters). As usual, there’s no pattern - I just made them to fit.
The blue is leftover Louet Gems from my first Henry Scarf. And the grey is leftover Classic Elite Alpaca Sox from yet another long-finished but never blogged or raveled project - mitts I made in February/March of 2008 right before I was hit by a car and couldn’t knit for weeks!
I love using up all my leftover bits of yarn - it makes me feel quite thrifty. I suppose I could knit up a sock yarn blanket or some frankensocks like most people who are into saving their bits… but I’m saving them for Elizabeth Zimmermann Nether Garments (rav links). I promise I won’t wear them in public!
