FO: anna stockings



pair number two of this adorable lace stocking pattern from rowan. tied with long, chocolate brown strands of satin ribbon that make them feel just this side of special. i think they'll be cool to wear with these tweedy shorts, with a skirt or with a just-above-the knee knit dress. or maybe even peeking over the top of a pair of mid-calf boots. knit up in rowan 4-ply soft, a dreamy, lightweight yarn that shows great stitch definition while holding its shape nicely.

Looks great!

they ARE adorable. i'm afraid if i were to make a pair and wear them in public that someone might mistake me for a scottish highlander en route to some kind of highland games event; me and my beefy calves.

Gosh, I LOVE them with the shorts. I could never wear knee highs with a skirt. But now you've opened up my eyes to more possibilities!

Those are adorable - love the ribbons. You may just inspire me to knit some stockings. Great, more to add to the queue.

These are lovely. I remember seeing that pattern, maybe I need to knit some stockings, too! would love to see a "side view" of the stitch pattern.

Those are beautiful! I love your colour choices.
I'm admiring your other knitting choices - I love lace too! (your chair yesterday is quite amazing).
You've inspired me to knit some socks too, and I'm not even a sock knitter! (I just got a pattern preview today from Stitch diva for a collection of lacy socks/stockings, with ribbon in them too. Have a wee boo at those!)

Beautiful socks - the satin ribbon is such a nice touch.

Ah, I love the ribbon. I opted out of the ribbon on mine but yours are making me think I should rethink the issue. They are just lovely.
