In my web-roving at work today (have I mentioned I am the best procrastinator in the world?) I discovered there is a Nancy Bush sock knitalong. I think the theory is that you knit a different pair of her socks every month. While I love this theory, I am glad I haven’t subscribed, as I would be an abject failure…witness the progress on the Gentleman’s Fancy Sock:
Actually, I’m pretty pleased with the progress – I started the gusset on Saturday morning (woke up at 7am and actually got up (!!) and did some quiet knitting on the deck while watching the US Open on Foxtel) but I believe I started this pair of socks in June!!! At least this is the second sock. In hindsight, given the mohair element in the Schaefer Anne, it would have been quicker to use metal sticks rather than bamboo but I do have this (idiotic) romantic attachment to bamboo. And if I’m really lucky, this unseasonably warm weather in Sydney will go away as soon as I finish them so I can actually wear them this year!! (although the thought of them wearing through is almost enough to make me cry…).
I do love this pattern though. And the colour (are you surprised at that!!)
