Description from website:
I adore Norah Gaughan and her use of hexagons. I’d like to think she’d appreciate these socks. They are constructed not from the cuff down, nor from the toe up, but from the center out. After the hexagon is knitted, stitches are cast on at the heel and worked down to the toe. Then stitches are picked back up at the heel and worked up the leg.
