Knitting Down Memory Lane

Hi Knitters,
How cute is that crazy stripey sock? I love everything about it. When switching the yarns while working I can't help but to remember where I was, what I was knitting with the yarn, which trip I was taking, what season it was, who I gave the finished socks to...

Well, you get it. It's like taking a stroll down memory lane. These socks are telling a story, like a little piece of personal history, and it is making me fall in love with them even more. I didn't expect that.

Are you gathering your scraps, your odds and ends, your bits and pieces,  your own personal yarn story? I am having a lot of fun ideas for this sort of sockalong. I'll tell you exactly how I am making mine and I will most likely do a few different versions.

If you have a good idea for naming these scrappy socks please chime in. Here are some of my ideas: stroll socks, scrapbook socks, memory lane socks, scrappy socks, story socks, slow cooker socks (because it takes years to gather the yarn)... I'm not sure yet.

I'll be back soon with more.

Happy weekend and in case I'm not back before, I am wishing you all a happy mother's day.
best, susie
