As an artist and art teacher, I was inspired by my watercolor paint set! This pair of socks implements rows of boxes (knit with colorful yarn) against a plain background to simulate an artist’s box of paints!

This sock is worked cuff-down as a “tube” with decreased toes and afterthought heels. The sock uses one main color yarn and calls for a variety of scrap yarns (2g-3g each, a great stash buster!)
