Scrap knitting


Summer is coming in with a bang and I don’t have enough pairs of short socks, but I do have plenty of leftovers from previous pairs of knitted socks.   Since the foot is in the shoe, most of the sock doesn’t show.   So I have decided to knit with somewhat similar balls of left over yarn.  I do one inch of knit 2, purl 2 on 64 stitches and then the  heel flap.   Here I am ready to turn the heel and pick up the instep stitches.   Somewhere in there, I will be moving on to the next balls of yarn.   This will indeed be interesting.

    Great colors in this one. How do you add the next piece of yarn when you are using scraps. I haven’t done my scrappy socks yet, but will start them soon. Still working on #2 sock of red ones.

      Thank you. I did my post tonight in answer to this question. If you don’t understand or want more info, please ask.
      Oh, and I’m not sure that it would be as easy if I wasn’t knitting both socks at once. That way, I can keep my colors fairly close on each sock.
