The first sock of the first pair from Nancy Bush's book Knitting on the Road is progressing nicely. Today sees the end of the first week of my year of projects and so far I'm right on schedule ... 52 weeks / 17 patterns = about three weeks per pair of socks.
It's a pleasure to knit patterns designed by Nancy Bush, and not just because they are clearly written with thorough explanations and complete charts. Her patterns always include charming details that make the socks really elegant; check out this "clock" pattern that creates a subtle column down the leg to the ankle and around the gusset along the side of the foot. It's a very nice way to dress up an otherwise rather plain leg. Here's hoping I can still say how much I enjoy her designs after 51 more weeks of knitting her patterns!
