Socks for Mr. Bennet's Leisure Needlework Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
After the engagements of Jane and Elizabeth at the conclusion of Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet remarks: "If any young men come for Mary or Kitty, send them in, for I am quite at leisure." These men's socks are designed for elegant leisure hours. The yarn is luxurious and a touch heavier than a typical sock yarn, but it is delicate enough that it's worth saving these socks for quieter hours.
