I finished these scrap socks, my second pair using the Fish Lips Kiss Heel as a toe. These were knit from the toe up at the same time, one on a 9 inch size 1 Chiaogoo circ and one on double points., It worked really nicely that way, as about the time I was sick of the double points I would work on the circular one for a few hours, and around the time I was bored going around and around on the tiny circ, I would switch back to the dpns. This was a single small skein of patterned yarn mixed with some scrap solid stripes. Nice socks, perfect fit.

Great looking socks, have always wanted to do a pair. Although i'm not very good with 4 needles.

Love your socks, you made great use of your scraps of yarn.

I really like the FLK heel, will try the toe on my next pair of socks.

Beautiful socks...I'm not a knitter but they make me think I may want to give it another go.

When using scraps combined to make a pair of socks, how do you keep from having knot bumps or worse, have them come apart later? I would love to make some wild socks for my GD. (My yarn is all striped.)

Wow!!!! Those socks are fantastic! I wish I could be half as creative with scrap yarn as I have sooooo much of it!!!! You are a great designer!

Thanks also for the link on how to use the FLK for a toe when you are doing toe-up. I was wondering if you were an English (thrower) knitter by any chance???? I knit continental and really need some hints on the TSP. It is very easy when I change my yarn to my right hand and throw it like the video and tutorials, but very, very cumbersome to knit it continental. If any continental readers are using this heel, I'd love to see some input from them!

Thanks,
Noreen (still blown away with your use of scrap yarn!)
