Slowly Coming Along

The Anniver- sary Sock is slowly coming along. Not much progress to show in almost a week, but it's been a busy, tiring week here on the cul-de-sac.
All of the knitting I have been able to do, however, has been pure pleasure! The Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock is a joy to knit with, and I think, is working well for this pattern. I know you can't tell too much at this stage.
And you can't really tell from this picture, but there are mini two-stitch cables in the cuff and running between the openwork columns and these have provided a new stitch for me. I guess you could say I've been cabling without a cable needle (even though I think WAY too much is made of this). The directions have you knit into the back of the second stitch, leave it on the needle then come around and knit the first stitch. A neat little technique.
As usual, that Nancy Bush writes a nice sock.

You are certainly fast! My biggest problem with socks is the foot. Seems to never end. No-one in my family has small feet, so it takes awhile. It's looking good though, keep up the great work. Maybe someday the temperature will be low enough that someone in your house can wear socks! It was 90 here today. Blahhhhh
