Inspired by the auburn, or red (depending on who you ask) hair that is Anne’s most distinctive physical feature, and the red clay soil of Prince Edward Island, this simple sock is something I imagine Anne would have knitted and worn many times throughout her life. This pattern has just enough detail to keep one interested while knitting and the lace patterning brings a little beauty to her everyday knits. 

“I always imagine I’m something very brilliant and triumphant and splendid . . . a great prima donna or a Red Cross nurse or a queen. Last night I was a queen. It’s really splendid to imagine you are a queen. You have all the fun of it without any of the inconveniences and you can stop being a queen whenever you want to, which you couldn’t in real life.”  Anne of Avonlea

Anne’s daughter Rilla absolutely loathed turning a traditional heel flap sock, but that would’ve been the predominant sock heel type in World War I. How Rilla would enjoy trying out the Fleegle Heel, an alternative heel turn that starts bottom up! This one’s for her.
