Beautiful Mitten Patterns to turn into Socks!

Go to this website and scroll down to Nonotuck Silk Co. PDF file.

This site is full of free books to download. I mentioned in another post.

This booklet, from 1886, is mostly patterns for silk mittens. I wanted to bring it the attention of this knitting forum because I know there are a lot of us that knit socks. Looking at these patterns, I can see that these mittens minus the thumb and with a short row heel or maybe other type of heel added should make beautiful socks. If you aren’t interested is socks, then maybe you would be interested in the stitch patterns, most of which I don’t believe I’ve seen before.
