St Kilda stockings

A chance comment on Facebook led me in a roundabout way to finding this photograph on the internet; I think the stockings may be in Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow, that needs to be certified by more research. Gone on my list of knitting things to be visited, though, is a definite. In the meantime, when I've finished my current batch of knittings, I want to recreate these and write up a pattern; want to use only handspun wool,  will try for Soay and Boreray maybe, am lucky enough to have these fleeces in my stash. Always exciting to plan a new project :)
