Fortissima Colori

This a sock made from Fortissima Colori Socka Color ( no. 9048 ). I knit it over 76 sts using 3.25 for the cast on, 2mm for the ribbing and 2.25mm for the main sock. This is slightly thicker at 420m per 100gm than Opal which is 425m per 100gm. So i am glad I knit over 76sts!

I really like the handle of this yarn. I also really like this colourway. The yarn is perhaps slightly harsher than Opal but that adds to it's visual appeal I think.

My own take on the Sherman Heel again. I never know when I start whether I shall do a gusset and flap or this.
