Even when I had absolutely no money for yarn, I always managed to have at least a current skein of sock yarn. I have several pairs of socks knit from leftover yarns. I've been able to get a pair of socks out of left overs from two pairs - which makes for some interesting socks but is pretty cool.

I really like this pattern. My Sockapalooza 3 (I think) pal sent me a pair of socks knit in this pattern. I liked them so much, I bought the pattern and one of my scrap yarn pairs of socks is knit in this pattern. That's most of a foot. It now looks like this:I have no idea what pattern the yarn is going to become. But I have those two socks books that I haven't ever knit a sock from yet, so the options are wide open! Any suggestions?
