Sock It To Me Monday: A Blast From The Past

I was struggling for something to talk about today. The shawl with just a few more rows is boring. So I thought I wish I had a sock to talk about and then it hit me, I do! I have many socks to talk about they just haven’t been knit recently.

Then I thought maybe something that could be made using leftover sock yarn would work.

Back in 2005 I knit H some rainbow laces for her Chucks with Koigu Painter’s Palette Merino fingering weight yarn. Basically it’s iCord but there is a pattern.

I can’t remember exactly how much yarn I used but I know it was leftovers. They lasted for a while but not a long time. The yarn didn’t have nylon. I recommend using a yarn with at least 20% nylon. They were fun though and knit up pretty quickly.

    What a cool idea. The laces on my high-tops are dingy. You just gave me a great idea.
