(3) How to destash – Sock yarn

January 25, 2010 - - 2:30 PM

Although I have not knitted one single sock yet, I own a lot of sock yarn.

Thanks to Raverly and many very clever people I have found out that you sock yarn is actually good for many things besides keeping feet beautiful and warm.

I would like to attempt the following projects:

  • There are so many beautiful shawls to knit. I would love to try Multnomah (direct download), the one skein stole or even Traveling Woman, if I manage not to mess up even easy lace patterns anymore. Some yarn is just too gorgeous too be hidden in shoes.
  • If you want to use up a huge amount of left over sock yarn, you could knit a huge blanket like the Barn Raising Quilt. If you do not want to buy the book, there is a very similar free pattern at knit me a river (knitted version) or Without Seams (crocheted version).  I could also imagine knitting an afghan with mitred squares or another shape like little fish.

If I manage to finish some of these projects this year I am sure that my stash will be greatly reduced.

Do you know of any other fun projects with sock yarn?
