Angular velocity specifies rotational speed. Specifically, it is the rate of change of angular displacement and is a vector quantity (more precisely, a pseudovector) which specifies the angular speed (rotational speed) of an object and the axis about which the object is rotating.

You may be wondering what does physics have to do with socks. The cables rotate around the leg, and the cables a little angular. Admittedly, I may be reaching to form a relationship between physics and socks, and I may be the only person that sees this relationship. I’m OK with that.

The cables, inspired by an Alpine stitch dictionary that found its way into my house, may look intimidating, but really they’re not. After a few rounds, you’ll see that they always move in the same direction. With a few yarn overs and stockinette between the cables, these socks can work up pretty quickly.
