18 March: Back in the knitting bag

Well, that was a nasty little interruption.

Back with the knitting, a Moebius scarf (yes, knitted with a complete twist in it, producing a one-sided fabric) is finished -

And a pair of yoga socks has been started. They will have no toes and no heel, to avoid slipping but at the same time keep feet warm -

And a piece of stranded knitting is under way, intended to become a felted bag -

All my handspun yarn, of course. The scarf yarn is Yarn Yard superwash BFL, spun fractally (fibre halved, then halved, then halved, etc), the other yarns, apart from the natural black Shetland, dyed at home.

Hope you're back in rude health. Keep mobile, that's the best thing.
Hope this sage advice helps...

I don't understand a word of this - but I now know what yoga socks are - Ain't blogging educational?

Love the moebius and the stranded bag. Looks gorgeous.

murph - struggling along, getting ruder by the day!

kaz - don't things like moebius loops and Klein bottles count as science these days?

anni - hi! The moebius was great to make, and I'm very pleased with the stranded piece.

No toes and heels, eh? I've got some socks like that but they didn't start out that way!

I hadn't thought of using them for yoga...
