The Bluestockings Club: Celebrate Some Writers! Knit Some Socks!

Bluestockings Club

Celebrate women writers! Knit some socks!



This club celebrates the lives and work of the important group of intellectual women - known as the “bluestockings”. We’ll explore the contribution of these women to the material and literary culture of the eighteenth century through seven different sock and stocking patterns; we’ll examine the history of sock knitting; and we’ll (of course)  knit our own bluestockings!
