Miss Lemon is Hercule Poirot's unflappable assistant. She can type, take dictation and even book you a table in Hell (The Labours of Hercules, Agatha Christie). She is an expert on nearly everything and plans to create the perfect filing system.
These socks are an ode to Miss Lemon. The wedge pattern which runs down the front of the sock pattern reminds me of lemon wedges. And for the back, I chose to replicate the slight fabric bias on the wedges and added a 'seam' down the back of the leg, reminiscent of the seam on stockings in Miss Lemon's time. I've always been fascinated by stories that women used to draw the seams on the back of their legs to give the illusion of wearing stockings, either in theater or during times of war shortages.
This pattern is part of an e-book series, [The Agatha Christie Series, Volume 2 (The Poirot Collection)]. Follow along as I create designs inspired by Agatha Christie novels featuring Hercule Poirot.
