More Sockotta Socks

Another pair finished. Most of my Sockotta yarn was purchased a few years ago when self-striping yarn was so popular. By now I no longer remember how the yarn forms patterns, so every pair is a surprise. These stripes were so big I just made plain socks.

After completing so many pairs of socks using Crazy Toes and Heels, I'm needing fewer reminders of the steps. That feels good.

It's nice to see the stack of completed socks growing but I can't say my stash looks much smaller!

Sockotta Socks

Here are the first socks from my extensive stash of Sockotta yarn. I don't remember if this yarn is a recent purchase or has been hiding for a few years but the colors really inspired me. It felt like spring was finally arriving after an unusually cold March here in Oregon. (Parts of Portland got snow during Spring Break --- an extremely rare occurence.) And, to top it off, I finally managed to make a pair that truly match!
