I picked up a handful of sample skeins of Happiest Girl! Dyeworks sock yarn at Knit Purl’s Sock Summit party back in August. Those little skeinlets are like mini-cupcakes — so cute and brightly irresistible. But what can you actually make with them? Since the dyer was at the party and encouraging us all to take as many as we’d like, I grabbed a pair in several colors with this pattern in mind. And it turns out I was exactly right: one sample skein = one Blue Steps Bootie with just enough left over to weave in the ends! I can’t tell from the internet whether Happiest Girl! is still in existence, but this is the colorway “Parrot” and the resulting socklet does, indeed, make me very happy.
I’ll finish the second one on the train to Tacoma this evening. Madrona, here I come!
