Scraps, Socks, and Spring

size 2 needles, using 56 stitches
I started this pair of scrap socks (two different yarns) several months ago; however, the Zip-lock bag they were in was constantly shuffled to the bottom of my knitting bag. This weekend, I pulled the bag out and finished the socks.

Kathy (fancystitchingnews) sent me scrap sock yarn months ago, and I am slowly knitting the scraps into bed socks to be placed in care packages for the troops overseas. My church has a contact with a chaplain in Afghanistan and packages are sent four times a year. Five pair of these short-cuffed socks were included in the last shipment.

Rain, instead of snow, actually fell out of the clouds on Saturday morning!

It may be premature to say this, but I think Spring has finally decided to arrive in Wyoming.

  8. Love the socks!! What a great charity donation knit! The colors are beautiful. Congratulations on the "sort of" spring. At least it is liquid spring instead of icy spring!
