Mom's Piebald Socks

I was making myself a pair of striped-y socks. Expirementing with a very simple lace pattern across the top of the foot. For some reason the coloring in the yarn pooled a spot of pale/white right in the center of the top of the foot of the first sock! So, my socks were Piebald.

I got them done and put the socks on, wore them for 5 minutes and decided they were too itchy for my incredibly sensitive skin.

I gave them to my Mom, who wears the same size and was *just* lamenting not owning more than 1 pair of handknit socks. LOL!

Mom wore for a couple days and then decided the red/white/little bit of purple stripe pattern wasn't really her thing so she overdyed them with blue koolaid since her signature color is lots of purple. :-D


  1. And I LOVE them!
