Sock It To Me Monday: Stationery Set

Last week I started knitting the first of a pair of mismatch socks – the (Ravelry link) Stationery Set from Yarn Enabler. I bought this yarn a couple years ago, and I’m glad I did, as I don’t know that the dyer is still in business, though here is the link to her site anyway.

I started with the “paper” yarn, and am just doing my usual plain toe up sock. The one thing I’m doing different is doing these one at a time, which is odd for me. Boy, single socks go really quickly! Also, I’m going to use up all my yarn from this set, which I don’t normally do. I just knit until it’s long “enough” and I’m bored of it πŸ™‚

The other sock will be a pencil πŸ™‚ Here is the yarn, and also if you follow the Rav link above, you will see examples of the mismatch sets.

The yarn for the toe starts black and then turns light brown, like the tip of a sharpened pencil. Then the foot and leg are yellow, and the top of the sock is silver then pink. Love this set! Also because this one is plain knitting, it is moving along pretty well. Maybe I can polish this one off this week? Who knows!

      1. Me and some of my fellow secretaries have fantasized about taking a road trip to SED in Albany in a rented vintage convertible with a trunk full of sharp Ticonderogas and raising a little h*ck!!

    1. Normally I’m pretty committed to matching socks, but when its a fun set like this I make an exception. Its like they do go togethet, even though they don’t match, if that makes sense

  1. I bought one of her original pencil sets after she asked the community for help to point out the fraud on Ravelry. My kids generally don’t match their socks; they’re too lazy to find the match.
