The genius of Nancy Bush unfolds in another pair of socks.
Stripy heels and toes, calf shaping, and a gentle texture.
Pattern: Gentleman's Sock in Railway Stitch from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. I didn't change anything significant about the pattern - worked the foot over more stitches and knit a more blunt toe.
Needles: Susan Bates US 0 dpns, set of 5.
Nancy Bush does it for a fifth time: Gentleman's Socks in Railway Stitch join these other KVS beauties: Child's First Sock in Shell Pattern, Gentleman's Fancy Socks, Gentleman's Sock with Lozenge Pattern, and Yarrow Ribbed Sock. And Lorna's Laces never lets me down - watching the subtle variegation keeps me entertained each and every time.
