Traveling Scarf Group - The Sock Yarn Edition

This is the second of my Traveling Scarf Groups and it is focused on sock yarn. I'm really enjoying seeing all the scarves as they pass through me for my addition. Below is a slide show of the scarves that I have worked on to date.



As you browse the pictures, if you mouse over the word notes on the right side, you can see details of the section I added to each scarf.

The great thing about this group is that I'm really getting to dive into my sock yarn stash. I've found yarns I had completely forgotten about and knit with others I'd never thought I'd use. I've been able to knit some of the scarf sections with leftovers from other projects, but other scarves required that I wind a yet untouched skein.

I did make one little rule for myself though. If I wind a skein to knit my section of a scarf - that yarn is by default my next sock project. Maybe not my ideal way of picking a project, but it is keeping me knitting and using the stash!

These are really fun to see. And I am chuckling because the first two somehow remind me of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

I wish I'd remember to photograph the scarves as they go through--it's cool to see some of them again!!
