Pat's Knitting and Quilting
September 29, 2009
When I found out that the SKA September Mystery Socks were going to be designed by Nancy Bush, I had to go for it! This pattern had so many of her wonderful features- including a lateral Vikkel braid, partial ribbing down the back of the leg, lovely lace, dutch heel with eye of the partridge flap and a toe I had never seen before (just like regular toe decreases, but with 3 points instead of 2) which fit my rounded toes perfectly. While knitting the lace pattern, it looks like little fox faces - hence the name.
Pattern: Fox Faces by Nancy Bush (this pattern will be deleted from Ravelry in a few days, so if you're interested....get it now) - September SKA Mystery Sock
Sorry - not the best photos, but I had to get them up quick to qualify for the red Solid Sock KAL for September :-)
They were a little bright for the full sunshine - here is a non blinding photo....
On the quilting front....I don't really like the final quilt for the Christmas Lights Mystery, so am not sure what to do with these blocks - I've tried other settings, but nothing seems to work - I may have learned a "mystery quilt" lesson :-)
So for now I'll make quilts that I know I'm going to like....
