Stumptown Socks

These socks are fun to make out of any speckled yarn that finds its way into your stash – they are mostly-stockinette, with a fun “v” pattern working their way up the foot and leg, it’s enough fancy footwork to keep you interested, but not so much that you miss what’s happening on Grimm…
