Elizabeth Montagu (yarn pack)
These stockings (or socks) 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.
Socks shown here in shade Dimity, stockings in shade Mackerel Sky
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 Dimity or 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 Gillian Swan, whose legs and feet are depicted here
