Leftover Yarn Socks


I love buying sock yarn.  I have made baby hats out of some of it.  But I don't always get motivated to make socks.  But recently I've been knitting socks again!  Then, a few weeks ago I saw this and since then  I've been thinking about using some of my leftover sock yarn for a pair of hodgepodge socks. 
These have about 10 different yarns in them.  There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the stripes.  Just totally random based on how much yarn I had of each kind.  I still have plenty of leftovers.  Like Kristen at Cozy Things blog, I think I will just keep making single socks until it's all used up.  Then I will have a whole pile of socks that don't really match but are great for wearing around the house.
I've already cast on for my next pair of socks.  Pink and peachy stripes.

I love these! I've been trying to figure out what to do with all the scrap sock yarn I have and these look so fun.
