Knee Highs and Lows

Two pairs of odd-sized stockings ready to go to their new home. Alas, I chickened out when it came to adding a corset pink stripe as dared by Mountainear, but I may pluck up the courage when I make the last pair. The photo is a poor one as the light coming through the window led to a little overexposure on one half. It was taken at the last minute before I put away the ironing board for another week (month?) or so.

These were made with odds and ends of the wool for a daughter who likes stripes on her socks, and as a long distance hug-and-get-well-soon-after-your-knee-op substitute.


  1. Congratulations on the completion of those Mighty Sensible Stockings. Still think a splash of pink (or even lime green) would make all the difference!

  2. Hiya TT,

    Those knee-highs look like storeboughts (and I mean that in the nicest possible way).

    They look as if they actually 'work'.

  3. I think they are what we used to call "fully fashioned" in the days of stockings and suspenders...
