Self Striping Blue Socks

Another single skein of sock yarn used up after adding a coordinating solid for the heels and toes. 

I was just throwing together what I had, so it was a pleasant surprise that the heels and toes go so well with the darkest stripes in the body of the socks. The ball band is gone, so I don't know what the yarn is, just that I probably bought it at the craft store ten years or so ago....when I thought knitting socks for little boys was a good plan.

Hi Michelle! I know exactly what yarn that is, because I'm using it right now to knit a sock--even the same colorway. It's Sensations "Soles & More" and it's 75% wool and 25% nylon. It says here on the label it's distributed by Jo-Ann Stores, mine is dated 2008, and it's made in Turkey. On Ravelry, I found the information that it's discontinued, it washes very well, and gets softer each time you wash it. Hope that helps!

They look warm and toasty. Congrats on your finish.

Oh! Forgot the best part from the label: Machine Washable.

Michelle, I'm wondering if you received my e-mail about a Paula Vaughn kit.
