Sweaters for Feet

After a string of several complicated and involved projects, it was time to settle down for some good old fashioned comfort knitting. And for me, that's socks. I'd bought some charcoal gray Cascade Heritage sock yarn on a whim last weekend, and when I mentioned socks to 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.

    I'm knitting at Janelle & Sharon's house right now. I read your blog and love the baby blanket and new socks. Wish you were here.
