This is the first project that I started and finished since Micah was born. These socks are awesome. After knitting these socks I still had 1/3 of the yarn left over. Enough for a single sock, or for a pair of extra stripy striped socks! I used random leftover bits of TFA Blue Label yarn in whatever colour I felt like with no real plan other than to use a different colour for each of the toes, heels and cuffs. They are certainly fraternal twins, and while I was working on them I worried that maybe they were too mis-matched, but in this case I think it works. The wackier the better, right? They are so fun.
Some people find leftovers to be a burden. Those little bits of yarn just sitting there, taking up space with no real purpose after their original intended project is complete. But to me, a bucket of leftover sock yarn is a gift! There is no end to the awesome projects that can come from it. And not just socks... hold two strands of fingering weight yarn together for a really funky worsted weight project! No limits.
