Recently I discovered that the first pair of socks I had made for myself all those years ago (over seven years!)
had developed a hole. Oh no! Just one stitch missing sort of hole and when I am feeling very clear headed I will try to repair it. It is a bit sad but I had not realised how much the socks had faded and they have shrunk a little and got a bit hard in places.
And then a little while later I found that another similar sock, my ‘hybrid’ sock made with two colourways of the same yarn, had an even bigger hole. I will also try to repair this but I do feel once a sock develops a hole it’s day are numbered.
Now I have lots of sock yarn in my drawer but have not made any more socks for a while because I had just about the right number to get me through a week or two. However I had bought a yarn that I really liked (even though I didn’t really need it!) because it has such a wonderful array of faux fairisle patterning.

So I just had to have some. This, the Moon Night colourway, was the one I like best.
And here is what I have done to date, so that you can see what lovely built-in patterning there is.
