Tere Estonia (or g'day)

These are the latest Estonian project - long socks, or stockings as they call them in the book. I thought stockings were longer, above the knee, anyway. They look quite warm but as spring has decided to arrive here I may not test drive them till next year.
The pattern said madder red, so I used madder red, but it's definitely quite a different colour from the red in the book.

Featuring Folk knitting in Estonia by Nancy Bush, Interweave Press, 1999 and pages from the Huvitav Jurnaal of 1939 to 1940.
