I have been thinking about spirals far too much recently. I think I made it clear a couple of posts ago that I don't like it when sock yarn spirals. The offending socks I was writing about earlier are here:
(I don't usually wear them with tights like this, but I wore these tights to work today and I couldn't be bothered taking them off for the photo.)
Why then, have I started a new sock pattern with deliberate spirals? And why am I loving it? The other day I saw that the lovely Lady Gem had started a gorgeous sock pattern and I just could not resist trying it myself with the posh sock yarn. And how happy am I that the sock yarn spirals, and now I have two spirals going in different directions on one sock?
All I can say is that when Lady Gem posted an innocuous picture of a sock she did not know what she had started! My spiral-phobia is over!
