Inspired by the beautiful waters of Lake Chelan, WA, these intriguing socks feature opposing cables which set off eyelet waves, like ripples across the water. From our cabin’s front porch, we have sat and watched the waves which go down lake in the morning then up lake in the evening. Every summer I go to that cabin, stand at the edge of the dock and wait for the winds to change.
