Feel free to be otherwise engaged while working on these socks - once you get in the rhythm, you’ll be able to concentrate on other things while working them. They are fantastic for a highly variegated skein, breaking up color in the most delightful way.

approximately 200-350 yards total fingering-weight yarn. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR LW in #shepersisted (hot pink) & Tigger Targhee in a rare gem for the socks pictured.

Otherwise Engaged is a part of my newest sock collection, Socks for Busy B’s 2. All three patterns have multiple sizes for adult feet, and both toe-up and cuff-down instructions. Like the first Socks for Busy B’s collection, all three patterns are easy to while doing life. None require tons of concentration, and all work super well with that sock yarn you may or may not have in your stash. You can get Otherwise Engaged on its own for $6.25, or a part of the three-pattern collection for $15.
