Notes

Part of my resolutions for the last quarter 2018 - knit more scrap yarn socks. I only knit this pattern once so far, but really like the broken seed stitch stitch pattern to blend colours. Will use the solid Jawoll for cuffs and heels as I am not sure I will have enough yarn left.

Yeah - finished first sock after 1 week. Ok, I have to admit that I knit past the heel turn by Monday, but all the rest I did with my early knitting routine, 35 minutes each minute after waking up. I really love how the two yarns mix up.

I am knitting the k1,p2 with the Buttinette yarn but this results in the Regia yarn being the foreground colour - interesting!

Turned the heel of the second sock. Really like how the two yarns work together! I want to knit all the scrappy socks - unfortunately, I will have to “produce” some leftovers and break into a fresh ball of yarn first. Or I might want to start a “make a scrap”-swap in the Buttinette group ? Hmmmm

Finished the knitting! Still some ends to weave in, but I really like it.
