Mary Delany

Stranded colourwork socks, with a floral trellis motif, for multi-talented eighteenth-century botanist and maker, Mary Delany

This is the sixth 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.
