Yet more socks

Well the felted knitted bag is coming along, but rather slowly. I think I am about 2/3 of the way up the main part of the bag, and after that is the miles and miles of strap to do. In the mean time though I have just finished another pair of socks! These ones are made out of Fortissima Colori bought from Web of Wool.

I bought it because I just love the colour, and it is constructed in a different way to other sock yarns I have used. Instead of being one colour which has been painted, each of the individual threads which are twisted together are a different colour and they change gradually up the length of the yarn. Here is a close up of the knitting so hopefully you can see what I mean.

The June edition of Knitting arrived a couple of days ago but I haven't had a chance to read it properly yet, hopefully soon.

Anyway, back to the grind stone. One reason for the lack of knitting is that I am attempting to write some more on my Plücker’s Mathematical Models write up, and rewrite what I have written so far into something more closely resembling English.

    What an honour that you put a link to my blog! Thanks.

    Love your blog, I like the oddment socks. I think our American knitting cousins call these "fraternal" socks. Similar but not the same.
