Gentleman, puh'leez!


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.

Gentleman's Fancy Socks?! Sounds fancy to me. It sounded even fancier when I initially read it as "German Fancy Socks"... think it's time to slip my glasses on. Gentleman or a German, they sound and look great to me.
see you, g xo
(Can't wait to see your car zine contribution... super excited about that, too.)

Beautiful! The tiny needles have put me off making this one too, but looking at your sock is starting to sway me.

argghh! That's right! I forget to look on Ravelry for help with this same sort of issue! Thanks! The socks look great thus far.
