Droid Skew Socks

When I saw Havirland’s self-striping sock yarn in color themes for the droids BB-8 and R2-D2, I grabbed some right away. My husband has always been a die hard Star Wars fan, and my son caught on around the age of two, so it was high time I knit something for the love of Star Wars.

This year I have been completely devoted to sock making, and when I chose this yarn I knew I wanted to do something special, something beyond plain self-striping socks. When I came across Skew, a free pattern by Lana Holden, I dove right in.

Check out the diagonals (on Star Wars bedding, of course)!

I had never seen anything like it in knitting, and it was a pleasure making these Droid Skews. They are more than a pair of socks; they are a work of art!
