Back At Last


I have been very slack on the whole Blog thing but also very busy with everything else. I am attempting a resolution to post at least one a week - but we will see how it goes.

I finally finished my rainbow socks made from Noro sock yarn and plain purple Morris & Sons merino. I love the colour transitions, particularly in the orange to aqua on the right one - it has this whole oxidisation thing going on.

These were knitted simultaneously on a circular needle thanks to this fabulous tutorial:

Although there are lots of warnings it is not as scary as it sounds - I went and did my first pair with stripes which doubled the strands of wool to get tangled and it was not too bad.

And a special thank you to Scott for contributing his exceptional foot modelling skills.
