accommodations

Deciding on which socks to knit next can be a tricky business. You have to try and make sense out of what you want to knit, what your yarn wants to be and what the wearer will wear. It took me a few false starts to work out which pattern was going to best with the black yarn DrM chose for his next socks, but now we are getting along fine

And I finished my bamboo socks, which are a perfect union of yarn and pattern.
