I started a pair of socks, "just for fun". Some white sock yarn from Bernat. I really did not have a pattern. I wanted to try the "magic loop" technique. Got it, mastered it....now what?

I finished the first sock, half way thru the second and I can see I'm not going to have enough yarn. I am sick of looking at the white, boring socks.[crazy]

Does anyone want a sock and a half? I'll send you the stuff just so I don't have to look at it anymore. Yet, I can't bring myself to just throw it away....help!!!

Spray some Pledge on the finished sock, and use it as a duster...and frog the partial sock. LOL

LOL, that's very funny!!!
I've had several single socks that never made it to a pair. NOW I know what to do with them. Yay!

Or frog the sock and a half (after all, it WAS a learning experience) and find some contrasting yarn and reknit with different color heel and toe and maybe the cuff.

Or frog and then dye the yarn if wool or cotton.

I talked to a gal at work, and she is learning to knit. She said that she would "fiddle" with the yarn...learning. Maybe we use it back and forth learning different techniques..


Thanks for the advise.
