Denmark Socks

Somehow the dark blue picture in the book never caught my eye - even though I am Danish, I skipped right over these socks again and again. But this month the Sockdown Challenge is a Nancy Bush or cable pattern,KOTR along is Friday Harbor (which I had already made), and Fall Cable KAL is underway, so I looked closely at the Denmark Socks and realized how pretty they were with the special little touch of the ribbing nupps and the beautiful cable pattern. In sport weight yarn on 3mm needles, they went quite fast...

Denmark Socks

Pattern: Denmark Socks by Nancy Bush from Knitting on the Road.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport 2 skeins (with 62 gms left over!) of Old Rose - a beautiful almost solid colorway - just enough variation in shading to give it a sparkle.
Needles: 2 socks together on 1 40" 3mm Inox needle
Size: 56 stitches - fits my wide size 7 foot perfectly.

This is a very simple and easily memorized cable pattern - I knit these while watching my boys at the skateboard park and during evening Red Sox games.


I start back to work today (RN - fairly flexible contract work - but still!) Hopefully, my knitting/quilting/blogging won't suffer too much!!
