Roman de la Rose Socks




I had quite a lot of wool left over after I made the tam so naturally I made some matching socks. These will also be available as a kit from Renaissance Dyeing from July this year. They will be on display at Knit Nation 2010 if you happen to live in England. There are going to be several gorgeous designs on display at Renaissance Dyeing all using Andie's naturally dyed wools, some in lace weight, and mostly organically produced from a flock of Dorset sheep in France. The designers Andie has engaged come from all over the world and they have come up with some stunning work. Have a look at the website when you have a moment.

As usual your work is absolutely beautiful. I love the tam - but oh, the socks! Glorious.

So glad you like them. Remember, this time you can make them for yourself. They're not even difficult.

I have just bought the kit for the Roman de la Rose socks, I could not resist, they are GORGEOUS! By an amzing coincidence, I had just started thinking 'I must re-read the ROMAN DEL LA ROSE'....and there was some knitwear based on it. THANKYOU SO MUCH!!!
