These socks were knit in Opal sock yarn dyed to mimic the colors in the Van Gogh painting Starry Night.
I think Opal did a great job with that. The socks were fun to knit and hopefully fun to wear. I have a recipient in mind. Sorry, it's no one who reads this blog.
As always, when done with a pair of socks I had two little balls of yarn left over. Not enough for another pair of socks, but enough to feature in my first charity hat of the season.
I knit these basic, warm, colorful hats by holding three strands of sock yarn together from my little leftover ball collection. When a ball runs out, I search in the bin for a suitable replacement and keep going.
Since none of the balls ever run out at the same time, it makes for an interesting mix of blended colors and keeps my interest even though the knitting process itself is boring as can be.
