One of the Perks of working in a Yarn Shop is that you are handed yarn and get to knit things that you might never knit for yourself. I was handed a One Pound Bag of Pagewood Farm's Sock Bites and told to knit samples. Here's what the nearly 1200 yards of fingering weight yarn looks like out of the bag.
What can you make with a bag of sock leftovers???
Of course, my first was a bit of Entrelac.
Several sizes of Mitered Squares was my next thought.
Sorry about the strings and unblocked look.
Many people have been making Barn Raising Squares with their sock left overs which means Sock Bites would be perfect for this project.
There are several varieties of sock yarn from PageWood Farm so some squares lay flatter than others.
My most recent idea was the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
I still have lots of yarn left.
I'd love some other sample project suggestions.
Mean while out in the garden...
The Dill has gone to seed. Doesn't it remind you of lace?
(or is that just me with knitting on the brain??)
I'm drawing a blank on the name of this plant at the moment. Anyone??

Good thing this is a tight shot otherwise you'd see all the dead lawn! The water restrictions here are tough; we're only watering the large trees in the landscape.
