My Dyed Yarn . . . Scarf

Looking at the multiple colors that "accidentally" came out in my "blue & orange" yarn in my first dye attempt (see previuos post), I realized that I actually like these skeins better than the "blue, emerald, & purple (. . and shades thereof) skeins.  The subtle colors of gray, brown, rust, copper, olive, and black against the predominant navy blue color  and highlighted by splashes of bright orange creates a unique colorway for this guy's scarf.&nb

Fibonnaci Socks.

For the longest time I've been wanting to make a pair of sock with stripes using the Fibonnaci Series. Not a big deal, except I want the series to start at the heel and work outwards in both directions.

Yesterday I came up with a method that should work to make a pair of socks starting at the heel. Yea. Right. I'll do it once, just to see if it works. Because no sooner had I done that than I realised that all I really need to know is the size of the socks and the row gauge and I can work the number sequence backwards. D'uh. Some days I'm surprised they don't come by and pull my geek card!
