Love, love, love the pattern (except for the heels). Yarn feels great so I sure hope it holds up well to wear. In spite of this particular heel not fitting my heel that well, I'm still very happy with this project. These were lots of fun to knit and I'd happily knit this pattern again. I like how the back eyelet ribbing does not continue all the way down. These give me a bit more confidence to maybe try some of the ones I've been eyeing for years in Knitting On The Road.
Nancy Bush writes patterns so well and so thoroughly. I remember wondering when I ordered this book if I'd ever be able to knit anything from it.
My first try was the Helgi's Mittens I knit for the Knitting Olympics. (I only signed on for one! I know my limitations!)
I was particularly inspired by a pair Sandy knit. And now she's knitting the same pattern again in another color.
