Blue Stocking(s)

These are very, very blue. I am very, very fond of them. And very satisfied by them–apparently there was a knee-sock shaped hole in my life, begging to be filled. These fit perfectly.

I only used 60 stitches on the foot and main part of the leg; I also skipped the first part of the increase chart and worked the second part of it twice. I incorporated ribbing into the final repeat of the calf, and then put in some ribbing at the top. I’ll chart this up if anyone’s interested; it makes sense in my head because I know what I did but I realize that it probably just seems vague to anyone else.

    Wow, they’re beautiful! And I just love the combination of a mesh-y black skirt and a lacy knee-high sock, very sexy. The calf detail is my favorite, a real eye catcher!
