Mini Party Socks

This comes from a collection of three different socks, one that has a fade, one that’s striped and one with color work.  I’m doing the colorwork one. Reminds me of the new Tellybean Knits sweater called Garland

Fingering weight colorwork short sleeve tee. I’m using my minis from the Merry Everything and Happy Always mini swap. What was that I said about not doing another colorwork fingering weight sweater any time soon? And now I’m planning for my next 3 of these….

Bedroom: Slip Stitch Dish Towel by Willow Yarns Design Team
Yarn: recycled cotton yarn from a cotton sweater I purchased from goodwill.  This is going to be part of multiple towels for my sister for a wedding present.  She is all about creative reuse so I think this will be right up her alley since I can’t do what I originally planned for her wedding present. This is my first one for her set.
