Mademoiselle Socks!

Introducing Mademoiselle Knee Highs!

I originally designed these for Rae's Yarn Boutique in Lansing Michigan for their 2011 sock club.  Copyright has reverted back to me, so now you get to knit them too!

These eyelet knee highs are worked toe-up with a triangular shaped heel gusset and eyelet shaping for the calf along a sturdy back seam.  The beauty of toe-up socks?  You can try them on as you knit them to make sure they fit YOU and then adjust for perfection.

I used one of my favorite sock yarns, Schaefer Anne for these... it's generous 560 yard put up meant I could get a pair of knee highs out of one skein.  The mohair content makes for a lovely bloom that allows the eyelets to soften.  Think delicate fishnet with these babies!
