WIP Wednesday - Those damned socks

Way back in October 2007 my friend Kerry and I took a trip to Ally Pally for the knitting and stitching show. I bought two skeins of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in an airforce blue colourway with the intention of knitting her some knee high socks for Christmas. Luckily for me I didn't tell her which Christmas! I chose the Kilt Hose pattern by Nancy Bush from Folk Socks

By the end of January 2008 I had one sock nearly completed. I did finish that sock in February 2008 and then I got distracted. Distracted for nearly 4 years. Ooops.

However, we now have progress on sock number two.
Kilt Hose Socks
Cuff and ribbing finished. I've started on the leg. How long until I get distracted by something else?

A 4 year distraction is good. We all need a break occasionally. ;oD (That makes me feel better about my hundreds of WIPs).

I'm impressed you've got as far as you have! :-D I often daydream about making really long socks but the reality of them just makes me love ankle socks even more!

I love the pattern, too. Folk Socks is a lovely book.

You're nearly there! ;)
These are still my husband's favourite socks. I fear the day when they become undarnable and he asks for another pair!

Wow! My socks! I could wait forever for socks that look that amazing.

I’m taken aback how well this blog is written and organized. Well done!
