Lady Meux, (1847 – 1910) was a Victorian socialite and the wife of Sir
Henry Meux, 3rd Baronet (pronounced “Mews). There is a famous portrait
of her by James Whistler, in which she is dressed in a soft gray and
light pink which was clearly the source of these colors for this yarn.

Pattern: The Hornet for the January Knit from Stash KAL on Addicted to Sock Knitting
The first Hornet sock for the KAL showing the first set of 27 stitches. I need to knit another set and then the first 17 rounds once again before beginning the heel flap.
The first Blue Moon sock with the leg portion finished. I'm ready to begin knitting the heel flap.
I did not like how this was turning out so I frogged it. I've been collecting patterns that work well with stripped yarn and will use one of them with this yarn.
I am a wife, the mother of four grown sons, and Nana to four grandchildren. I work part-time as a librarian/ archivist at a university library. I enjoy knitting socks and mittens and other items for charity, reading, hand quilting, growing old-fashioned flowers, and bird watching.
