Interweave Knits Gordon Highlander Socks

The re-creation of The Gordon Highlander Sock was inspired by what is perhaps the first photograph of a military regiment: the 92nd Gordon Highlanders at Edinburgh Castle photographed in 1846. It depicts the regalia, including tartan kilt socks, and may be the earliest known evidence of multicolored knitting in complex patterns. The photograph fueled the designer Anne Berk’s quest to re-create the traditional socks. From the Jan/Feb 2011 issue of Piecework magazine.
