Broken Seed Stitch Socks

I have been in the mood of knitting socks lately. They are relatively quick but very satisfying to make and in this sad and uncertain period that we are living in now I want to focus on things that make me feel good. In addition, staying at home every day made me really appreciate my hand-knitted socks. They are truly the most comfortable socks to keep my feet perfectly warm. Although I recently received a package of sock yarn, I have been feeling the need to use up some of my partial skeins. I am not worried about running out of yarn. For now, anyway... 😉 However, with local yarn shops closed for who-knows-how-long and even my favorite online yarn source, the Wool Warehouse, suspending international orders, I just want to use my stash smartly.

I knitted the Broken Seed Stitch Socks by Hanna Leväniem as my first stash-buster socks. I used DROPS Fabel in Berry Dreams and Black with 2mm needles. I decided to go down in needle size, because I liked the black rhombus shapes the tighter stitches created. Also, I love the contrast of the bright variegated yarn against the black.
