Socks in progress

These are my current socks in progress.

They were mostly knitted on planes somewhere between here and Thailand. All the long haul regulars were asleep. I was awake with my knitting and a whole heap of Colin Firth films to watch on the inflight entertainment.

I love the patterns this fairisle making yarn creates.

But if you look closely the yarn for one sock differs from the yarn from the second ball. I must have picked up 2 balls from different batches. The colours are generally ‘muddier’ in the second sock.

I don’t think any one will notice.
The are long so they will stick out nicely above my boots. I love how quickly dk knits up for socks!

  1. I love that yarn – I’ve made a cardigan with it and, with the chunky version, a cardigan. All the fun of fair isle without the faff 🙂
    How come you were allowed to take knitting needles on the plane?
