Unst in progress

Unst in progress

I've been working on these slowly for a while, since they're not quite as portable done two at a time like this. But, I learned from Hedera that my gauge may change between socks, it seemed prudent to do two at a time. I don't often find solid coloured yarn locally, so I'm glad I was able to get this. I knit with Fortissima all the time, but for some reason this tweedy deep green colour actually feel rougher than the other Fortissima that I've tried. I have no idea why.

Pattern: Unst, from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road
needles: size 1 (2.5 mm) addi circs
yarn: Fortissima Socka
started: Aug 11, 2006

These socks are coming along so beautifully, I really love the pattern and the color of the yarn you're using! I've been knitting a bit with Fortissima too and have also noticed slight differences in the rough- or softness of it, I wonder why this could be?
