In week three I got a little more ambitious. As part of the Anything Nancy Bush knitalong on Ravelry I chose Virve's Stockings from Folk Knitting in Estonia as I wanted to make something slightly more unusual. I also love the way that the coloured band appears at just the right spot between shoe and trouser.
I didn't have quite enough yarn to make them full knee socks - in fact I am quite pleased with my judgement as I finished both socks with a couple of feet a yarn to spare. This didn't stop me making contingency plans about different colour bands on the toes, however.
I am becoming a little more optimistic about my ability to give this challenge a good run for its money. I certainly have the speed and I certainly don't have to turn into some sort of reclusive sock knitting machine. While I was knitting these I spent four days in Wales and four days at the Isle of Wight Music Festival. Either I am becoming more brazen about knitting in public or it is possible to run a normal life while undertaking this foolish game.
We shall see.
