stairs at kew hothouse
This photo has nothing to do with knitting. It is a spiral staircase at Kew Gardens where I spent this afternoon. It's just prettier than my FO which is illusion-knit so doesn't photograph well.

Anyway, knitting. DNA illusion socks. Done.

I used leftover yarn from Bakerloo, the illusion-sock idea from Lovemeknot and the dna chart from Rosalind. I'm calling them Dr Moreau. They are for a science teacher friend of mine who goes under the name of Dippy. A very late birthday present.

dna socks hidden dna a socks pattern


They were late partly because it took me a month or so after his birthday to actually cast on (ahem), but also because Dippy has HUGE feet (hence bagginess in the shots above, those are my feet - and yes, in case Dippy is reading, I did take the photos before I washed them).

At least I think he has big feet. I measured them properly but I decided to knit him socks at our joint birthday party last April, and by the time I got the measuring tape out we'd both had a drink or two. So I hope they fit.

Next project? To continue with the mixing it up theme, I thought I'd try Crusoe, but toe-up with a dutch heel.

They're great! Great yarn, wonderful pattern. I love the secret science illusion knitting (or could it be allusion knitting?). I'm sure he of the coolest name will like them as much as I do.

I adore those socks!!! saw some illusion love heart socks and when I'm brave enough I might have a go.

Love love love the socks!!. Will a pattern be available - we are not all clever enough to adjust from Rosalind.

The slip stitch pattern used in Crusoe is great, particularly for variegated yarns that pool.

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
