Tipsy Stripey Socks

Sometimes it seems we have the most fun when we use up our odd balls of leftover yarn and just go for it.

Here's a case in point. We had some very loud self-striping Kroy socks, and we had some green Kroy socks that was leftover from the Corduroy Roads Socks we made for ourselves. They were made to go together.

This pair is sized for a child with 8-inch long feet. (They almost fit us....Ladies Size 6....just a touch snug.) They're destined for Afghans for Afghans for their current campaign. We are told green is the colour of Islam. In our eyes, green is definitely the colour of hope. If you're interested in knitting for the women and children of Afghanistan, this is a very easy way to do it. Any sock with a foot length between 6-1/2 and 10 inches is welcome. Use up your leftovers. Slip the socks into an envelope. Slap on a couple of stamps.

We're adjusted the comments setting yet again because a number of people reported blogger was being 'difficult'. Hope to hear from you soon!
