Love You - January Ankle Socks with Heart

2. February 2015 07:04 by Jobo | 2 Comments

I have lots and lots of sock yarn leftovers... it comes with the territory.  I rarely make socks that use an entire skein.  So I thought between the January and February KnitFromStashKAL socks I might try and use up a few little scraps that are cluttering up my studio space!DSC_0681

The Yarn:

- Knit Picks leftovers... if I can remember correctly - Stroll Tonal in "Wine Tasting" and Stroll Tweed in Flagstone Heather

lovey toes!

The Pattern:

- who needs patterns!  (yeah right!  We all do sometimes...)  I decided to fly by the soles of my feet on this one and make it up as I went!

- I began with a Turkish Cast On... aka Toe up.

- Next came a color switch, since I knew that I likely wouldn't have enough to make the entire foot in the grey shade, I thought I might go for some Valentine themed socks and throw in some purple and pink shades!  Gotta love the contrasting heels, toes and  ribbing.  Classic.

- What goes with February and Valentine's Day?  Hearts.  <3 <3 <3

- I improvised a lace heart on each of the toes.  Just one on each foot.  Simplicity Rules.

- Then I knit until I was almost out of the Pink/Purple yarn on each foot, and did a short cuff with K2P2 Ribbing, and cast loosely with a stretchy bind off.

- The heels were afterthought ones... (see my tutorial here!)

cuffs and heels...

Notes:

- Another easy and simple pair of socks... maybe not the best design to keep feet warm in this wintery season (we just finished up with a snow and freezing rain storm over the weekend and there is another big white mess coming this evening!) but they're cute, they cleaned up a little of the yarn mess in my studio, and I think they will be perfect for lounging around the house.  Plus - they match my housecoat!  Win win win!
