Lorna’s Lace Sock Yarn

What do you do with all those little balls of yarn left over from every single pair of socks you make?

It has always been a waste to me these small amounts of left over yarn from knitting luxury hand made socks. After a little think and successfully making the Linen Stitch scarf out of lots of left over sock yarn I decided to make a sock.

So here is my sock made with three colours of Lorna’s Lace Sock Yarn. The three pairs of socks were knitted by my friend Alice and while the two lighter colours are mine the rich brown/blue is left over from a pair for Alan.

I knitted this using Hiya Hiya DPN size #1 as I did find mine by Alice done on a #2 were a little loose. I used three little balls – and have three more to do the second sock. And the pattern I used was Ann Norling #12 which for a plain all round good fit sock takes some beating.

Not sure is I shall just wear these with some boots during the winter months or they might end up being bed socks for this winter.
