Calcareous \kal-ˈker-ē-əs\ adjective

  • of, containing, or resembling calcium carbonate; chalky

When I was in elementary school, it became fashionable to pilfer sticks of colored chalk from the blackboard and pulverize them into little piles of soft powdery colored dust. There wasn’t much of a point to the exercise, but it was unreasonably entertaining. The colors of this yarn remind me irresistibly of this childhood venture into the criminal underworld.

This is a tidy little top down sock that features a simple cable pattern. The design is carried down the heel flap, and the gusset is moved to the top of the foot for a crisp look. It works up quickly, but still provides enough of a challenge to hold your interest.
