Evangelina Socks

Yay Spring and Summer issue! Yay for summery knitting!

And delicate lace socks are just the thing for summery knitting! We loved Ruth Churchman’s Evangelina sock pattern the minute we set eyes on it.


And then to learn of its wonderful inspiration – even better.

Ruth works at National Museums of Scotland library, and she found this book in the library collection: Scrivenor, M. Elliot. Collection of Knitting and Crochet Receipts. John Paton, Son and Co., Alloa, 1896.

The design is based on a Victorian baby’s Bootee pattern Ruth found in its pages… More about it on her blog.

    PLEASE – please talk to your web guru about fixing your header! Your logo is non-existent and the header bounces up and down as one scrolls down the page while taking up anywhere from 1/4 – 1/3 of the entire page… it has been this way for weeks now.

      Oh god yes. I thought it was just me. On this laptop the banner takes up about a third of the screen all the way down the article. I can’t get rid of it! Makes things very hard to read, especially if there are any pictures.
