The view from my writing desk is stunning this morning, with all the trees in full bloom, and the sun shining in a glorious blue sky. This will hopefully make for a productive day of PhD writing, interrupted by a stroll through the park and a nice brunch with [c], to make the most of this lovely Scottish spring day.

Some of you may have noticed that with the thesis submission now seriously looming [160 days, to be precise], I’ve returned to knitting as my favourite tool of procrastination and therapy. So, here I present you another project complete:

Pattern: Fort Grey by Fiona Alice
Yarn: The Uncommon Thread Tough Sock [colour: Confetti]
Needles: 2.25mm
[More project details on Ravelry]

I think this is the most entertaining sock project I’ve ever knitted, with so much going on at every corner: a Turkish Cast-On and a Stretchy Bind-Off, purl stitches, knitting stitches, slipped stitches and some serious cabling all helped me to keep the writing panic at bay, and to get my creative thinking going.
