Grellow Love

It is no secret – I simply love the grellow combination! There is something about grey and yellow that keeps me coming back for more, pairing the perfect grey with glorious yellow - I just can’t get enough of it.

There was no way I could let the leftovers from London Skies and Aussie Sunshine go into the scrap box. They were simply too precious. Cue some toe up socks that allow you to use every single metre of that glorious yarn.

These simple toe up socks are brilliant for stash busting all those sock scraps that you’ve carefully saved for the perfect project. The contrast toe and heel details are an ideal opportunity to play with fun colour combinations.

Don’t have enough contrast colour for a pair? Why not mix and match, creating fun mismatched socks as you go.

Want long socks for colder climes? Simply keep knitting until you run out of yarn or the leg is long enough. Running low on yarn? Throw in some stripes.

The possibilities are endless!
