Why some projects go faster than others (decided an IKEA pencil is probably the most reliable universal measure of scale on the planet).

From left to right, worsted weight, two strands of fingering weight, lace weight (fingering is the most commonly-used yarn size for knitting socks)

And those same yarns in knitted form comparing stitch sizes. Clockwise from left: multicoloured worsted, orange and dark green fingering, purple/blue lace

And a quick look at the current state of the Null Hypothesis, just out of its bag (hoping to at least finish the laboratory equipment section this week)
