Haystacks

My socks from my stash for August are Jane's Haystacks socks from the Summer Pick n' Mix collection available at The Yarn Yard

I used the left overs from The Yarn Yard June 07 sock club yarn, which I absolutely love. I made my sockapaloooza socks from this yarn last year - they are one of the pictures on the right hand side of Natalie's blog, which makes me smile every time I see them.
As you can see, there wasn't quite enough plain blue yarn to make the new socks matching, but I don't really care! I love them.

The leg pattern is ingenious and makes the socks grow really fast. These only took about a week and a half of train journeys to Birmingham and back.

I have about 2g of the variegated yarn left, so it really is stash well and truly used up!
Thanks to Jane for another great pattern, and to Natalie for some wonderful colour choices.

I love those socks, the pattern looks so nice.

So do I! Thanks for posting a close up of the leg - I hadn't realised that they were patterned this way (thought they were just wavy stripes).

What a pretty little stitch! They look lovely.
