Sockyarn Destash – Pt. 1

After knitting three pairs of socks for my sister I made two pairs for myself. I didn’t know it at that time, but I was already hooked. There were a couple of sockyarn balls left over from my Hexie blanket project and some irresistible bargains – how could I not buy a couple more at half the price? At some point I had no choice – start using the stuff or get buried under a collapsing pile of wool. So I got industrious.

And I learned to knit another two types of heels, one of them with a diagonal seam which has become my new favorite – easy and quick to knit. The second type is knit after you have completed the sock, to fiddly for me as you have to remove a provisional piece of yarn and pick up the stitches again. I only used this method with the Granite socks.

Here are the first six designs. I’m currently working on pair #12 and have got a dozen more drafts in my Ye Olde Sock Designer sketchbook.
