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.
Yarn pack includes 3 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 shades Dimity, Bell Heather and Mizzle plus a complementary KDD wee project bag.
Please note that this yarn pack does not include the pattern (currently exclusively available as a part of the Bluestocking club and book)
Grateful thanks to Nicole Pohl, to the KDD bluestocking team, and Gill and Mimi, whose legs and feet are depicted here
