Skewed results

I'm officially half way through a pair of Skew by Lana Holden.  Gotta love socks designed by a mathematician (mathmagician?).......who's named after wool!

The ingenious design creates a diagonal which looks really cool and swirly....
...and makes the teeny tiny cast on a perfect fit on the big toe.
Some increases, some decreases, some twists, some turns and Voila!
Worked in Steam Valley Fiber's Hand Dyed Fingering Sock Yarn in Rainbow.  I think a slightly longer color repeat might make the swirliness even more pronounced.   'Course this is just the half of it.  You'll have to wait for the mate to get the full effect.


  1. Very nice! But are you sure you are going to knit a second one? Just like the first one??

    I am working on the two at a time technique...

  2. I have to knit the second one - they're for someone else, and she's already paid me in sock yarn! Otherwise it might be years between mates! Learning 2-at-a-time on magic loop is on my to-do list...
