Fortissima 2021

This is Fortissima Socka colour #2021. 75/25 Superwash Wool/Nylon fingering weight. 

Plies of black and white are twisted together to create a bit of psychedelic busyness. I actually bought this thinking it was a grey/black/white fleck that I've knit many times before. I like it, even though it has pushed Pure Black off the top of my  'most difficult stitches to see' list.

The end result, I consider a nice casual sock. 

Here it is in size Large, knit with the 72 cylinder and 36 ribber on the Verdun 47. This pair has 1x1 ribbed top, then 5x1 rib on leg and instep.
