We are glad to be finished with this pair of socks!
The pattern is "Fancy Silk Sock for a child of 5 or 6 years" in Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. We knit the pattern as written in the book except that we put two rows of purl as shown in the original Weldon's drawing instead of two rows of knit between the two lace patterns at the top.
I don't know what the yarn was as I lost the label before starting the socks. I do know that it is a cotton yarn that neither A nor I liked knitting. It must be because the cotton yarn did not "give" and was tiring on our hands. Don't look too close. There are mistakes on both socks that neither one of us wanted to take out and reknit. If it weren't for this "Two Make a Pair" project I know I would never have a match to my sock! I like the stretch that wool has as you knit.
We are already working on the next pair - using a nice superwash wool from KnitPicks.
