These socks were inspired by my brother and father-in-law’s frequent treks in the woods. The cable rib pattern reminds me of the intertwining branches of trees in the forest. The socks feature a long cuff, and are knit in a squishy, worsted-weight yarn. Because of the thick yarn, they knit up surprisingly quickly, making them ideal for gift giving.
