Once upon a time there was a lovely handspun Suffolk yarn dyed in a near exhausted fructose indigo dye vat. Or perhaps it was just that the dyer had exhausted her capacity to keep the vat reduced.
It was paired up with some indigo-dyed merino-silk commercial yarn. Here I am knitting at the Royal show. Watching the ponies.
I stopped with two legs knit because the Suffolk yarn for the feet was in the royal show. I started another pair of socks and this pair of legs sat on the top of a chest of drawers for some weeks. Once I got to the point where I started knitting the feet, they went super fast, with a few long meetings and some TV watching.
Here I am heading for a grafting moment at a concert at the Fleurieu Folk Festival.
And here are the finished socks!
