I finished the spiral rib socks and delivered them to The Daughter yesterday. They came out very well with a great fit and nice bouncy ribbing. I'm glad the project is over though. Despite the excellence of the Trekking yarn, there's something about the shade that I don't love. Violet toned purples have never been my favourite and, as you know, if you don't love your colour, the knitting can be a bit of a slog.
I much prefer blue and plum tones. So I dug out my Wellington Fibre in the colourway Midnight and have cast on another Wild Plum Shawlette - for myself this time - that will actually be plum.
