Mimi Seyferth knitted these excellent socks on double pointed knitting needles as a nod to the crucial clue in Patricia Moyes’s mystery novel Night Ferry to Death that involves an unfinished knitted sock and a missing double pointed knitting needle. A Windmill Stitch pattern and a Dutch heel seemed to be natural design elements for socks inspired by a mystery featuring a diamond theft in Amsterdam. (Interweave)
