Pattern: Nancy Bush, Oak Ribbed Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: DGB Confetti Superwash, 49% Superwash wool, 35% Cotton, 16% Nylon, Made in Italy
Coulour: 08.003; the picture is decently accurate in spite of the flash and white wall
Needles: Brittany Birch 2.5 mm (1.5 American)
Source: I've forgotten. Someplace in Canada where I buy Phildar patterns sometimes
I've heard that Nancy Bush's patterns make narrow socks which wouldn't match my feet. These are not remotely narrow but they're a bit loose too. If I used this yarn again, which I won't because it feels a bit too much like string, I'd knit it on a 2.25 m I think.

Oh well. At least I finished one sock, a self-designed entrelac and hope to finish the second of a different pair today. Maybe I'll even get the manual for my new camera read.
Maybe next year at Rhinebeck. This from somebody who lives less than half an hour for MS&W.

I'll bring you pictures soon. You see I bought myself a lovely new digital SLR but don't know how to use it yet. These complicated gadgets seem to take some learning time, especially when you approach them with a casual approach as do I. I'll be back.

About 200 yards of silk, dyed by Janet Stolnitz (Dyed Dreams), procured at the MS&W 2006. Pattern is a variation of an IK Summer 2006 pattern. I wish I knew how much of the inability to see it up close (I tried) is the camera and how much is the operator.
Oh, and I got this. The kitchen scale has scampered back into the kitchen, this one has been semi-permanently adjusted to measure grams, and it looks so good I hate to find a place to stash it. As if.
