No gentlemen here, and to appropriate a line from poppalina, no ladies either for that matter!
Latest socks for SSS - Gentleman's Fancy Socks, from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.
I'd been wary of starting these because they are written as men's socks, and knitted on 2mm needles, but a quick search on Ravelry found me the modifications I required.
I couldn't be happier with the results thus far.
The Knittery's 4ply Merino, Passionfruit, and my new Clover bamboo dpn's = perfect match.
