A few skeins of unwanted sock yarn held together with some lace. It was straight ahead, using a simple top-down pattern I’ve used so many times. I had a few issues with the stripes as the amount of yarn in each color pretty much directed the arrangement … Basic and comfy sweater that will be used a lot, but not a big deal really …

I’ve kind of obsessed with making perfectly fitted socks (!)
I always do them toe-up, two-at-a-time on a Magic loop with gusset and a heel flap.
As my sock experience progresses I start to picture my own socks and I have this thing with knee-highs generously topped with a textured band to fold. My first attempt turned out quite successful and in time I will make a pattern for it.
Now I’m trying to make a pair in a sport weight-yarn with a striped top made from leftovers.

Didn’t take much yarn – or time – I could hardly tell from the basket that some of the yarn had gone and the knitting only took me a day off from work – left all the ends to be weaved in to the next :)
