Sock Knitters Anonymous – August

September 8, 2007

I’ve been working on my August challenge for the Sock Knitters Anonymous on Ravelry.  It took me awhile to find a pattern that I liked, but I finally decided on Nancy Bush’s Fancy Silk Sock for a Child of 5 or 6.  Of course, this sock is adult size and destined to be for a friend.

This was the first time I’ve used Socks That Rock.  The colorway is Tidepool and it was one of my great finds at the Black Sheep Gathering.  I never really mind pooling, and have been very happy with the way the colors look on the pattern.

The requirement for August was Lace or a Sockbug pattern.  I’ve done the River Rapids pattern and loved it, but many of the Sockbug patterns are to big for me.  Typically 64 sts is to many.

I am very happy with how quickly this pattern is knitting up and am excited about finishing them up!  I’m already thinking about what I’m going to make for the September Challenge.
