Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet...

Since I finished my last stripy socks I needed to cast on another pair as my default travel knitting, I was lucky enough to get a skein of GothSocks in a destash last month, I really wanted this one because it was a club colour and it was inspired by one of my absolute favourite songs, I challenge you to listen to this song and not feel happier than you did before you listened:

There's a royal blue stripe and a yellow/white/grey flecks stripe. I LOVE it!

I'm not sure I'll do another afterthought heel, I wasn't very pleased with the fit but a heel flap will disturb the stripes a little bit - I think I'd rather have slightly thinner stripes on the gusset section than socks that don't fit properly, but I haven't completely decided yet.

Along the theme of things that are blue, in the post today were 2 bags from NicsKnots, Doctor Who knitting bags - how cool is that? (Answer: VERY) Inspired by my new bags and to get through the huge break we're having in the latest series I'm contemplating ordering series 1-4 of the new Doctor Who on DVD and re-watching from Christopher Eccleston onwards.

I'm also contemplating this Tardis colour skein of Wollimeise I bought at Knit Nation last year, as if I haven't got enough on the needles - Nic, you have a lot to answer for!!!


  1. Ahh but the bags match your new sock yarns so well ;)
    I now have that song going around in my head...I love it, happy, happy, happy :)

  2. They are very cool bags Chris and I have that colour yarn's lovely.
