These stockings are named for eighteenth-century Bluestocking woman of letters, Elizabeth Montagu, , and are designed to celebrate the creation of a new digital edition of her important correspondence (EMCO)
This is the first pattern in our Bluestocking club, in which we explore the lives and work of eighteenth-century women writers - while knitting our own socks and stockings, in John Arbon's wonderfully woolly Exmoor sock yarn.
Each stocking is knitted to the length available from a single skein.
Yarn pack includes 2 x 50g skeins of John Arbon Exmoor Sock 4ply (60% Exmoor Blueface, 20% Corriedale, 10% Zwartbles, 10% Nylon; 200m / 219 yds per 50g skein) in shade Mackerel Sky plus a complementary KDD wee project bag.
Please note that this yarn pack does not include the pattern (currently available as a part of the Bluestocking club and book)
Grateful thanks to Nicole Pohl, to the KDD bluestocking team, and Gill, whose legs and feet are depicted here
