Nutty little Nutkin

While I haven't been traveling back and forth to work for a few weeks, I have been trying to put a row or two on my Nutkin sock
As a result, I'm through the gusset and working my way down the foot. As you can see, I have a matching skein of grey for the heel (and toe when I get there). It's my favourite way to knit with a self-striper... not only does it add a bit of visual interest, it keeps your stripes from breaking up.

I don't expect to have this pair done anytime soon - now they the holidays are over, they are going back to travel knitting.... but of course, I do have that long commute home.... so who knows...

The texture is great with the stripes. Nice work on the sock knitting even when that beautiful cardigan is so alluring!

I love these! Just put the pattern in my Ravelry library. I like that you used a regular rib cuff too.
