Anu’s Stocking


After reading Margene’s post on Roositud I knew I had to try it out for myself. I had always thought it was simple embroidery, but now that I know it’s a knitting technique, I’m all for it!
I’m doing Anu’s Stockings from Folk Knitting in Estonia. I decided to do them cuff-down because I was feeling rather nostaligic. Never to leave a good pattern untouched though, I’ve decided to change up the colors and do something more fun. I have the other 2 colors picked out and I’ll hopefully be able to show them to you by week’s end (I don’t get much knitting time during the week and I still have that birthday scarf to finish by Wednesday).
I have high hopes for these socks. I’ll be teaching another sock knitting class in February and I’d love to wear them to the first class.

  1. I love the idea of something that looks like embroidery, but moves like knitting and is done while you go. Smart folk, those Estonians.

  2. I love the technique myself a lot. And by the we, in Estonia both ways have been equally in use – embroidery and while knitting. I’ve used both…
    Me as an enthusiast of folk art just love to imagine people far from Estonia knitting Estonian kind of socks 😉 Good luck with it! :)
