Thornfield Socks by Rachel Coopey.
The yarn is by Knitting Goddess, in the colourway "Morticia" which shifts from charcoal through violet to grey and back again. Beautiful!
I am quite relieved to get away from knitting "black" yarn in the dark of winter.
The stitch pattern reminds me of wrought-iron gates. Thornfield after the fire?
As soon as I finish writing this, I intend to dash upstairs to cut out the denim to make my Peggy skirt. It was just too gloomy to do any sewing last weekend.
12 pairs in a year? No problem!
My organic wool has arrived from France, in a wonderfully crunchy brown paper bag festooned with a sprig of lavender. Gorgeous!
