IOS Argyll Hose
Today I had a package in the mail from Russett Lodge Custom Knits, yes my hand knit Argyll Isle of Skye hose from Diane have arrived.
These hose are hard to describe they feel soft, but they are chunky and warm and they look wonderful in my opinion, these are definitely a luxury item and I won't wear them often but they are perfect for really dressy occasions, I am very happy with them and I would and will recommend Diane and her work to any and all. I think I'm just about ready for Burns Night now with this latest package. Diane was wonderful to work with and I have to say through this process we have become friends.

Very nice! The outfit looks wonderful with them. I have been eyeing one of her bonnets I might have to order one next month!!
I love the handmade hose my Mum makes for me. You are right; they really are a luxury item!
Wear in good health,

When I them on my own I wasn't sure but when I saw them them with the whole outfit I could see how well they matched!
Now you only need an IOS fly plaid to complete the outfit Glen

Trefor I've never really thought of myself as a fly plaid sort of a guy, maybe buckle brouges but not the fly plaid.
