New Pattern!

Fanny’s Handiwork:

These are the socks that Fanny Price, from Jane Austens book Mansfield Park, knits, after she has helped Lady Bertram with her questionable handiwork, with her head full of hopeless dreams of being Mrs Edmund Bertram and the images and shapes of a life as a ministers wife.

The socks are knitted from the cuff down, in fingering weight sock yarn, on 2mm needles. They fit an average woman’s foot and are ankle high, about 10 cm from the heel up. They have a fold down lace cuff, an afterthought heel and are knitted in a broken rib that gives a bit of a pinstriped effect.

Sturdy, practical footwear with a dreamy lace edging.
