Yarnalong: The Big Smoke & Dave


Knitting: Dave socks by Rachel Coopey in Patons Patonyle

Yip, Dave socks again. It’s a good pattern. I’ve accidentally altered them – I did a 1×1 twisted rib instead of 2×2 because I thought I knew the pattern better than I did. No biggie.

Also, how bright is that yellow?

Reading: The Big Smoke New Zealand Cities, 1840–1920 by Ben Schrader

This is both school and pleasure – Ben is a great writer and easy to read. It’s also about bloody time we had an urban history in New Zealand, so it’s all good news.

See what everyone else is knitting and reading over on the original Yarnalong.

    Oh, wow! This yellow is mind-blowing! I’ve never knit witch such bright yarn, I am too addicted to neutrals, but I love looking at other projects knit in colors! They definitely have a character!

    I have a similar shocking yellow in my stash … socks are genious! I tried to pair it with a turquoise in a shawl but it was too much … socks may be a perfect way to use it!
