I'm half way through the second one now though, and quite enjoying the 'Fair Isle effect' wool (not sure it looks like real Fair Isle knitting, but it's pleasingly stripey all the same).
Sock knitting is a pretty good craft project for me at the minute. We've still not moved (of course) and everything is still in boxes, so this is something that doesn't take up a lot of space, and doesn't need a lot of equipment.
I wonder how many pairs of socks I'll end up with before we finally move??
