I'm in the home stretch with a pair of socks called River Rapid, found on Ravelry. It's terrific for avoiding pooling with this sort of wool. Good luck!

Dark Puss

It is easily available from Cornflower's weblog! See rhs near top of page under Email Me

dovegreyreader

Yes but when you click on it nothing happens unless you have Outlook I think Dark Puss:-) In the end I sorted it by right-clicking and 'copying e mail address' which miraculously appeared when I pasted it into my address bar. I'm a bit slow at these things!

Dark Puss

It works perfectly with Thunderbird. Glad you got it anyway.

dovegreyreader

Oh now look what you've done, I want Thunderbird now.

Jennifer

Very sensible indeed.

Kristina

Great colours! Looking forward to seeing your socks :)

Dark Puss

Dear Darlene and Cornflower, for the absolute non-expert what is pooling please?

Cornflower
Well, I'll paraphrase the book:
as you knit the sock (a seamless tube which is effectively a spiral) the colours repeat, and as they wind round the spiral so they end up sitting next to or on top of one another. Depending on the number of stitches in the round, or the needle size, and the length of each colour section, 'pools' of colour can develop, i.e. instead of, say, smallish regular segments of red/blue/green/yellow, you can end up with a big pool or flash of one colour instead of a more even 'striped' distribution.
Does that make sense?

Dark Puss

Absolutely and many thanks for taking the time to answer my naive question. P x
