from Favorite Socks:
“Although readers of Knits know and love Nancy Bush’s sock patterns, they probably haven’t seen these delightful “party socks.” Nancy is the treasured knitting contributor to PieceWork, an Interweave publication dedicated to a variety of traditional needle arts. These socks, which she designed to commemorate PieceWork’s tenth anniversary, were inspired by a number of historic socks she’d seen in various museums over the course of a decade. In the style of nineteenth-century European women’s stockings, only the front of the socks is decorated to show beneath a long skirt.“
