new socks with old yarn
one of my favorite funky sock patterns is stripe tease. i have knitted this pattern before with just 1 yarn, and a few days ago decided i wanted to make some socks with leftovers, so i pulled some of my self-striping leftovers from a bin.
the original pattern knits it with 6 strips, but i am knitting with 4 strips, and the bottom of the foot will be in one piece, since i don't think having seams on the bottom of the foot would be comfortable.
the socks will be a gift if i finish them in time.
i'm still knitting on my tubularity. i'm on the last color too!
and, my beeline sweater is still sleeveless =(
there are just not enough hours in the day!
i took this photo some time last week. we'd had a day of rain and wind, and the next morning my truck was buried in leaves.
