Warm Socks for Mr. Woodhouse
Mr. Woodhouse rarely travels far from home, and certainly wouldn’t leave Highbury, so this is the one pattern in the collection that is based not on travelling, but on staying cozy at home.
It is quite clear to me that Mr. Woodhouse is in need of a warm pair of socks to keep his feet protected from the perils of cold, damp weather. What better material to use than wool, which is naturally insulating even when damp or wet? Despite being trying at times, Mr. Woodhouse is deserving of our affection and esteem, and perhaps even our hand knits.
This pattern is written for a knitter who is interested in trying out toe up technique. Included in the instructions are charts, links to video tutorials, helpful hints, and explicit instructions to create a worsted weight toe up sock. The knitting goes quickly, so it's a satisfying first pair. Avoid the second sock syndrome with this satisfying treat for your feet.
