Shamrock Socks

It’s been a while now that these have been finished but I’m still in love with them.

I love how the stripes just happen with yarn like this and I don’t have to think about it. This was my first attempt at an afterthought heel to save the stripes.

I wish I’d been able to predict just how much yarn the heel would take as I ended up with more left over than I expected. The whole point of stripy socks is to use all the yarn. I think next time I’ll try to manage it a little better. I do love these though.

  1. I love how the stripes worked out too. I really need to cast on a new pair of socks. I keep knitting shawlettes instead.
