1846 gordon highlanders regimental socks

Light Fingering ?
18 stitches and 22 rows = 2 inches
US 2 - 2.75 mm

Saw this in the jan/feb 2011 issue of piecework and need a pair! Just lovely (too bad they used an unattractive MC on the sample-EWWWW!)

Note from Anne Berk (designer). I’ve added photos which I took of the socks in the Sock Museum, at Sock Summit! It was great to see them, again, and to have them available for knitters to see.

About the colors- I chose colors that would match the photo when photographed in black and white, as re-creating the historic photograph was the goal of the project. I actually like the colors and think they are very manly, but the Gordon colors are now red and white.
