Valentine’s day – I mean Cyril and Methodius day, since St. Valentine has been extricated from the official Roman calendar of saints – Goodness, that means it’s halfway through February. Good thing I’m more than halfway through February’s socks.
They’re the “Latvian Stockings” from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. This is a month where the pretty yarn – “Merisock” from Punta Yarns – does all the work. The pattern is simple, little lace chevrons that you’ll memorize before you’re through the first repeat. They are currently called “Latvian Royalty” on my Ravelry page because of a rash of unoriginality hovering around these socks. I have been enjoying them, but they are…. well. “meditative.” That is the Nice Word in knitting for “boring.”
The have a longish leg, but a shortish foot, so they will have to be for a smallish person – mercifully, I am related to a number of such persons. I’ll see if I can get them on at the end of the week, by which time I’m sure they’ll be finished.
Sorry. The endless series of 10-row repeats are only adding to the somnolescence of this drizzley, oddly warm February day.
