    Gairloch Pattern Hose

    I realized after sharing the pictures of my new Inverness Cape, that I hadn't shared any pictures of the latest pair of hose I knit. I've long admired the Gairloch pattern and decided that I would give a them a try. Very pleased with the result!

    Very impressive. I've done a little knitting in the past - started with Fair Isle and know just how challenging such a pattern can be.
