February marked 200 years since Edgar Allen Poe's birth. Seemed fitting to knit the Lenore socks in the Lenore Socks that Rock colourway, right?

STR lightweight, Lenore

I cast on just after Poe's birthday and finished the first sock two weeks later. The other is still mid-cuff, but it's in my purse and gets picked up from time to time.


With a few knitterly gatherings coming up on the schedule, I'm sure I'll get the second sock knocked out by say, oh, next February.

    When I received the pattern initially I wasn’t so keen on it, but seeing your version has changed my mind. Sadly I used this yarn in a Chevron:(

    Gorgeous! Both the pattern and the colorway! I might need to invest in both …
    Oh – and the box bag came — it’s great! Thanks!
