Quick remedie

By now it is not a secret that I was struggling with knitting in the last few months... not a finished object since the tangled yoke...So much I was thinking OMG what will I do with all this yarn if I have to stop knitting because I just can't do it anymore...
I keep on knitting, but also keep frogging and starting "something else" ... I just needed something simple and quick to finish and reinforce my belief in the fact that I can still knit and finish something...
I also keep saying that I am not a sock knitter, but where did I turned when I needed a quick fix? To my huge bin of sock yarn where I keep the treasures from the second hand/thrift store I mentioned earlier...

It is toe up, short row toes and heels. On the foot stockinette at the sole, ribbing on the upper part, on the leg part two by two ribbing. The cuff is intentionally so short (to wear with summer sneakers) and down-turned.

It was interesting to see how the colors pooled and made up gently swirling stripes...

It is so simple this is what I do when I just want to knit some socks...I've been asked to write up the "pattern", and I might do that one of these days...
