These socks were inspired by my visits to my grandma in Hollingbourne Road, London when I was a little girl. She had a love for making and was always working on something when I came to visit, whether it was knitting, sewing or even felting little stuffed animals for me to play with. The colourwork pattern reminds me of the curtains in the attic room of their Victorian house where I would stay. I would lie and stare up at them and look through to the blue sky outside.

These socks are knitted from the cuff down and have an all over stranded colourwork pattern. The socks are knitted with a short row heel. The instructions are written for 2 sizes using gauge and needle size to achieve the size difference.
