One Sock Two Socks Magic

Fun fun fun. This is a great idea. And perfect for all those lonely sock yarn skeins.

All you need is a 50 grs lonely skein – that is about 200m or 220 yards, some scraps, a pair of scissors, – yikes – and a tapestry needle.

It starts with a toe – worked toe-up, of course. Switch to your lonely skein and knit a tube until your skein is completely finished. Then, you add the cuff …

And then, you need to follow the pattern to add all the different items (I changed the order a little).

The pattern is a free one and can be found here

Here is a photoreport.

fruit socks

Bananas ?

Blueberries ?

Carrots ? not really a fruit, but sweet anyway

Cherries, maybe ?

with a slice of lemon ?

raspeberries or strawberries

Pick out your favorite fruit and yarn and knit a pair of socks.

If you really can’t make up your mind, why not wear a strawberry sock with a banana sock, or a raspberry sock with a cherry sock?

rasp + straw berries-

lemon + bananas
If you have an excellent cook or a foodie in your family or friends, it might just be the perfect gift…

The socks are worked toe up with a heel flap and a short row heel.
