I have been knitting in doctors offices and on the road while away from home this past week. I finished these two nights ago. A pair of re-purposed socks for my youngest.
Mom had knitted socks for herself with this yarn, but they were huge, big enough for an elephant my 4 year old would say. So Mom one day said, take the socks home and make something with the wool. Not colours I would have chosen. So I knitted these little socks 10 child for next winter.
Because the wool is re-purposed and the wool split in areas, the coloured strips do not match row for row on each sock. I could never sell these because they are not perfect, but the little ones feet would never know.
