Mont Blanc means “white mountain” in French. It is the highest mountain in the European union, rising to 15,781 feet (4,810 m) above sea level. the eleventh-highest mountain in the world, it is known as La Dame Blanche, which means “the white lady” in French. In 1786, jacques Balmat and Michel Paccard made the first documented ascent, and some people consider this the beginning of “modern” mountaineering. Although Mont Blanc is the highest mountain within the European union, it is not the highest mountain on the continent! But I consider this an honorable mention.

These socks are worked in the round on double-point needles, with traditional shaping techniques.
