Village fete

The ‘Village Fete’ socks celebrate everything that is special about the start of summer in England. After a cold winter season cooped up in their country cottages, villagers spring forth on May Day and celebrate the start of summer with a ‘Village Fete’.  

That wonderful event was Kay’s inspiration for these fingering weight socks. The garter band running down the back of the sock represents the ‘Maypole’ often seen at ‘Village Fete’s. The streams of lace flowing down the front are the ribbons which the maypole dancers hold. So grab yourself some yarn and lets cast on a little taste of the perfect English summer.!
