The Challenge: Redo: brown, practical accessory and silver screen.  Basically, I repeated the pattern that I did for silver screen but I did it in brown.  The green pair was given away as a Christmas gift.IMG_20151206_093131565

Year:18th century to  early 19th

Notions: 5 double point needles.

How historically accurate is it?: Very!  My wool was probably a bit thicker than what they used.   95%?

Hours to complete: About 20

First worn: not yet

Total cost: $16
