"Anniversary Socks" by Nancy Bush
I wanted to share this beginning stage photo of the "Anniversary Socks" by Nancy Bush. I don't think many folks have posted about this design. It is very enjoyable indeed! I did have to make a chart of the stitch pattern - as it was written out. Funny, a year ago, I would have preferred the written format. Now I am a total chart enthusiast!
I am using the seemingly popular "Louet Gems Pearl" yarn for these socks. It is a first for me. I certainly like the feel of the yarn, but question it's duability. Time will tell - I am sure.
So - I leave you with a word of encouragement... give these socks a try. I really like designs that have a different stitch pattern on the front vs the back. Nancy Bush seeems to have several of these to her credit. She is one of my favorite designers!!
