My mother cross-stitched this picture for me many years ago. I’m pretty sure it was a Christmas present. In my mind’s eye, I can see it hanging in a string of graduate school apartments as well as another apartment here in Gettysburg and now in my house. When I find myself frugally trying to use every last bit of something, I often hear this poem in head:
Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do
Or do without
These are the “blendy” socks I showed you a few weeks ago. They were made from leftover yarn from this pair for S1:
(Did you notice that I reworked the toe decreases on these? No more candy corn!)
I actually ran out of the beige yarn before finishing the second sock. If you look carefully, you’ll see one blendy toe is worked from both ends of the blue/green stripey yarn. This continues the blendy effect even though it’s from the same ball of yarn.
It just tickles me to make 3 pairs of socks from 2 balls of yarn!
