Wild Boot Socks

Here’s some wild-caught boot socks  (not the farmed variety. )

Edit In 10/15 :  Now, the day after, I can tell the world these were made for my  ten-year-old niece who just turned eleven yesterday !  I stuffed them with retro candy and she loved ’em!

I’ve been sketching with some DK yarn bits in my stash drawer. Total improvisation of color stranded motifs. Like fly-fishing for wild trout, one listens closely to their instincts .

Just a wild pair of boot socks, playing with color and also functional design. I talk about this process way back in this post  

These would pair well with hiking boots or big ol’ clogs.

Upcoming: I’m working on the last of the size-run test-knitting and then pattern for PrettyLittleThings socks should be making an appearance! I got sidetracked with some other knitting projects, but now there’s nothing standing between me and the pattern. 🙂
