These socks are tantalizing to knit because of how the linen stitch plays with hand-painted yarns, and the architectural lines are captivating to watch as they emerge.

Sky architecture expands over the arch from the point where the leg flexes at the top of the instep. Heel stitch may be worked on the back of the heel as well as through the heel turn and base of the heel. I worked ribbing on the back of the heel for a decorative effect.
