After the engagements of Jane and Elizabeth at the conclusion of Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet remarks: “If any young men come for Mary or Kitty, send them in, for I am quite at leisure.” These men’s socks are designed for elegant leisure hours. The yarn is luxurious and a touch heavier than a typical sock yarn, but it is delicate enough that it’s worth saving these socks for quieter hours.
