WIP: 4AAT free-sole socks
In pursuit of my sock goal (14 pairs of handknit socks in my drawer), I've just started 2 pairs of free-sole socks. One will be in linen st, and the other will be honeycomb stripes (lace).

Pretty, pretty, pretty. You must be happy with this style of sock. Is this more recycled sweater yarn? I went to look for sweaters to ravel out and came home with one to wear.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Yes, I like the free-sole sock and would like to hone my technique. The green yarn is recycled sweater yarn, an angora/lambswool blend that I dyed with Kool Aid. The other yarn is Adriafil Knitcol. I have so much stash yarn, I don't think I'll need to buy sock yarn for the next couple of years.

I know what you mean about sweaters to unravel vs. to wear. I picked up a lovely gray lambswool Fair Isle cardigan that I intended to unravel. It was so cute I decided to try it on before unraveling it and was surprised to find that it fit. So, instant sweater!

LOL Bonus! I never find anything for me to wear when I look.

I love your yarn colors and the idea of the free-sole socks. Can't wait to see the finished socks in both patterns.

Thanks. I'm eager to see how they come out, too. After these are done, I need only 3 more pairs to make my goal of 14. I will then have a drawer full of luscious handknit socks. I guess you can tell I love handknit socks.
