Yet another pair of...

17th century socks for reenactment.

Yes, I know, these posts are gettingfew and far between, but sometimes life just shifts around and emphasis falls on different this... However I am still knitting, even if less than usual, and as I am getting increasingly involved with reenactment, I am making stuff for that old-new hobby, and friends involved.

Dóri, who is the leader of the foundation, and the historical dance group, asked me for a pair of socks, "Warm ones, like Judit has" ... "but could you make them red please?"

So red they are.
Pattern is like the one before, out of my head. Based on existing stockings.

According to their new owner they served her well in Groelle... where the weather was... as usual, wet an cold.

Yarn: Lana Grossa
Needles: 2.25 mm
