I’m so pleased with these “Evening Stockings” knee high socks. The yarn is Wollmeise Twin (80/20%, merino/nylon) in colourway Rosenrot, or rosered and indeed they are the colour of roses.
A few weeks ago, about the time I really got going on these socks I found a bunch of beautiful big red roses in the local florist, from Columbia no less.
Anyone who’s knit a Nancy Bush pattern understands how satisfying they are. Well written, researched (as in the case of the Knitting Vintage Socks book) and well, classics. I now have such a collection of her patterns I almost don’t know which one to pick next!
