Little Socks

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.

They are not mismatched, they are unique!

I really like them! They are unique and they were done with love :)

I have yet to learn how to knit socks...maybe one day I'll sit down and figure it out!
