Rosa rubiginosa
I love the contrasts inherent in sweet briar. Delicate, sweet-smelling, pale pink flowers adorn massive shrubs that tower far above your head and are covered in piercing thorns. It’s a perfect illustration of the danger of underestimating something just because it seems sweet and demure. The socks echo the subdued form of the petals. Simple and straightforward, they nonetheless give a charming result especially as the patterning falls away leaving plain stockinette on your instep. The mitts are a bit more challenging. An intricate lace panel (inspired by the sharp points of the thorns) runs up the back of the hand. The palm is ribbed to provide a good fit, and the thumb is carefully positioned to ensure the mitt is comfortable.
