You may remember that when I went up to Scotland for The Glasgow School of Yarn, I had a sock entered in the Charles Rennie Mackintosh design competition... Well, the design has finished test knitting and tech editing, and is ready for sale.
I'm so very happy to release the Rose Tendrils toe-up socks. These socks are an engaging knit for someone who wants a little bit of a challenge, and a beautiful pair of socks at the end of it. The textured knit & purl pattern on the top of the foot was adapted from two different Japanese stitch patterns, and the lace motifs clocking each side of the ankle, in the shape of a Mackintosh Rose, are wholly original. The sock is constructed from the toe up with a gusset and heel flap, and has three sizes for an easily customized fit.
