Scrap Socks or Leftover Socks?

I love making scrap quilts - it always feels like they are free! But what do I do with leftover yarn? Now I know! Is that called scrap knitting??? I found a pattern to use leftover yarn and it works great!

I had this leftover variegated/self-striping yarn.

I had this yarn in my stash that was also self-striping.

I would never have put these together but I did...

And I love the result!

One day soon I'll show you the finished socks and share the pattern and other information.


  1. You are tempting me to get back to sock knitting!! Those are gorgeous!!!!!! I'm a devotee of the "mismatched sox" group (and, yes, I have even purchased the packs of 3 socks found in specialty shops!!!). Please, do share the pattern !!!!!!!

    1. It is such a neat way to use up leftover yarn! Or brand new yarn! Once you get the spiral knitting down, you can use any pattern done in a circular fashion. The pattern is free on ravelry.com
      Enjoy! ~Jeanne

  2. I wouldn't have thought to put those two yarns together, but I love how they turned out in those socks! Fabulous!

  3. Love how those came out! Now to get cooler weather to have them snuggle your feet.
