Working On: Estonian Socks
October 10, 2012 § 6 Comments
I’m not sure how it happened, once I finished my self-assigned interminable sock knitting, that I immediately turned around and started knitting more socks.
Because that’s exactly what’s happened.
These are even Nancy Bushes– they’re the Estonian Socks from Folk Socks (a 1994 classic that was just re-released last year). I’m working in Shepherd Sock, which I’ve never used before. I’m coming to terms with the superwash merino & nylon content.
Namely: is the environmental effect of eschewing superwash wool really worth it if the socks you make wear out in less than a year?
Anyway, it’s fun colorwork & a fun pattern, and I have less than two weeks to make the pair (and on US sz. 0 needles!).
