A year ago this month this vibrant skein of yarn came into my Yarn Stash
Oh, I love how vibrant the Gold plays with the
pinks, purples, blues and green.
I just knew it would be knit into a wonderful pair of sox.
once knit up
it's not always what one expects.
My Honey Badger Sox
NOT what I expected or wanted.
Those vibrant Golds are just not 'popping'.
It seems the darker green and blue are predominate.
Not the outcome I expected.
They are in my sock drawer,
but have never really, truly been 'in like' with them.
Fast Forward to this past December
There are posts on Instagram
from a knitter in Norway
who is making use of leftover colorful yarns
combined with white
to create a wonderful pair of sox.
This gal in Norway is a prolific knitter.
Could it be winter snows that keep her indoors?
Already this year she has knit 17 pair of sox.
Yes, that's right, 17 pair.
Anyway, after seeing three or four pair of her sox knit with this combo last December
I decided I must give it a try.
I picked up my leftover ball of yarn with the gorgeous golds,
got out the white yarn
and here's the result.
! ! ! ! !
these are much more to my liking.
The alternate rows of white yarn do lighten the entire project.
Must find just the pattern
for every skein of yarn.
These will be worn with love.
hugs 'n smiles
p.s. The first pair from this yarn [Honey Badger Sox]
have, in the meantime, found a loving home.
