Dalarna Sock 1

Sorry for the long silence. I had a horrible cold (from the child) for a few days and then a major computer hardware failure. Eesh. I'm now back on track, I believe.

Knitting? Well, there is my long neglected Dalarna Sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road.

I LOVE this sock. Now it needs a friend. The Guernsey yarn is stiff, but should soften when washed and looks like it will wear very nicely.

I wasn't sure how the little clock pattern that runs down the side of the sock would look, but I am very pleased with the result. I made a heel flap and picked up stitches, as the pattern suggests:

The heel also came out nicely, perhaps my best heel ever. Now if I get to cast on for the other sock...
