At the beginning of the year I decided to challenge myself to attempt using up all of my sock stash. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to be able to reach that goal, but thanks to summer I’ve definitely made a good dent.
I actually didn’t make my first pair of socks for the year until Mother’s Day. Since then, I have made 5 additional pairs of socks–4 for me, and a pair for my dad. So here’s a look at my new socks, even thought the pictures don’t do them justice:
Modified “Argyle” Socks from book Toe Up Socks for Every Body
Red Heart Ltd “Heart & Sole” sock yarn; 2 skeins navy
Coral Pair: “Diamonds and Cables” from book Toe Up Socks for Every BodyUniversal “Pace Step” sock yarn; 2 skeins coral
Striped Pair: “Victory” from book Toe Up Socks for Every Body
Patons “Kroy Sock” yarn; 2 skeins Mulberry Stripes
Purple Pair: 2×2 cable ribbed pattern, basic sock recipe
Cascade “Fixation” yarn; 2 skeins purple and Knitpicks “Felici” scraps for cuff
(pattern modified for toe-up)
Lion Brand “Sock-Ease” yarn; half skein of Lemon Drop
I loved this pattern and would make it again

A LOT of work, congrats 🙂
