Janelle, she was ready with a suggestion.
So on Thanksgiving afternoon I started a pair of Anne Hanson's Fishbone Gansey Socks. They're like a fisherman's sweater for one's feet! I like the sideways fishbone pattern across the cuff. It was interesting to make, although I'm already at the start of the heel. It seems to be business as usual from here on out.
And then I get to do it again. And on my rockin' new dpns. I have a lot to be thankful for.
