Just down from the clothesline and on my feet: Fox Faces Socks by Nancy Bush worked in String Theory Caper Sock, colorway Bee's Knees – formerly Sock of Shame #11! The first sock was finished September 2009, the second sock was finished yesterday evening.
These socks truly are the bee's knees. Ordinarily I don't care for yellow socks, but this is another inspired pairing of pattern and yarn, if I do say so myself. I'd happily use this soft, luxurious yarn again. It's subtly mottled, dense and not as sproingy as some, and feels fabulous when worn. And I'd happily knit this superb pattern again, the September SKA mystery pattern. I love the vikkel cuff, lace rib (which compensates nicely for lack of sproing in the yarn), and birdseye heel. The only modification I made was to the toe. I knit the fancy toe in the pattern...
... but it proved to be uncomfortable on my Frankenfeet, so I frogged back and worked my usual round toe.
Three empty clothespins! I daresay this calls for cake. Given the frequency and severity of cake fail roundabout Exit 151, that's no small matter.
