I know, I know, radio silence for eons at a time and then suddenly three posts in less than a month. I have been knitting because I know that when school is back in session, needles and yarn will have to take a holiday.
These are my Ravelry Sock Knitters Anonymous entry for the month of June. We had a choice to design our own or use any Nancy Bush creation. I chose a sock from her Vintage Socks book. It has some crazy long name, Silk Socks for a Five or Six-year Old Child. I liked the lace pattern. It shines using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Medium Weight Spirits yarn. All yarn in this collection are lightly tinted, this one being blue. The more I look at it, the more green it seems to be. The results are pleasing, to me anyway.
I took too many pictures and Dorrit became weary and wanted a play mate. He decided to chew on my ankles mid shoot. He is a hellion and snatches yarn out of my stash basket every chance he gets. These sock have a few joins thanks to Dorrit chewing the unguarded sock in progress.
