instead, i'm doing pretty good at using my leftovers .....
this sock is part of the december challenge of SKA on ravelry. there was an option to knit socks using the technique of the month, and the technique is to use leftovers (which, does not mean, use up little bits of fresh balls of yarn).
my leftovers include bits of regia, brown sheep wildfoote, opal, and the lionbrand sock yarn.
(and looking at the picture now, there are some yarns not pictured, as i made some changes along the way).
but, you get the idea. i finished the first sock last night, and cast on the second. for the second, i'm going to do something different. instead of using the blender pattern, i'm going for the stashbuster spirals 'technique'. i want to see what happens with the colors as they layer in a spiral. it's fun. and, i get to use up leftovers (which i have a ton of). and, putting these yarns together is the closest transition i'll get w/o making my own handspun.
