Gah, it’s hot out. So hot that I’m not really motivated to do anything. But, I was motivated just enough to take a photo of my new July socks. These are for Markus and named “Maurice Moss” after the nerdy character from the Britcom The IT Crowd. Markus is also a computer nerd/programmer. He developed Sconcho knitting chart software (which is free BTW so check it out) so I thought the name was fitting. And really, Moss is the funniest character in that show. It’s too bad it only ran for 4 seasons.
This yarn is DARK! So dark that I need some good back lighting in order to see what I’m knitting. The yarn is my favorite Fiber Optic Foot Notes in the colorway Espresso Batik. The stitch pattern is basically just a bit of swirly ribbing flanked with 2×2 ribbing, both front and back. This satisfies my love of ribbed socks without being too boring to knit.
