Like many other knitters, I find it difficult to stay away from bright variegated yarns. The struggle is always to find a pattern that shows off the yarn as well as the all the work that went into knitting up the pattern. After hoarding far too many skeins of colorful yarn, I finally found a way to use them up.

So, jump into your Chevy, drive down to the levy, and join the good old boys (and girls) while knitting up your very own Whiskey And Rye socks.

And to see what others are coming up with, join us in posting your socks on Instagram with the tag #whiskeyandryesocks

The slipped stitch pattern is a little tighter than a plain stockinette sock and will not stretch quite a far. Consider knitting a larger size or with a larger needle than usual.
