From socks to mitts

Years ago, I knit the Swedish Fish socks with my sock knitting group in San Francisco. Sadly, my background color was a 100% merino that felted and the socks shrank. I handed them down to my kids until tent were too small to ya k onto anyone’s feet!

I recently decided to try to upcycle the socks into fingerless mitts!

First I inserted a circular needle into the solid row between fish. Then I cut the yarn and started knitting k2p2 ribbing using the swatch from my So Faded pullover. It’s looking good!

I think they’ll be very cute mitts, and I learned an important lesson about yarn choice!

Happy knitting!
