London Skies

Inspired by the skyscrapers of the city that took me in, taught me to dance in the rain and made me feel at home amongst the hustle and bustle of city life. London holds a very special place in heart and as I was leaving the UK I knew I needed some grey socks to bid farewell to “The Big Smoke” whose grey clouds often hang low in the sky.

Worked from the top down these socks are easy to knit on the go with a simple but striking rib pattern that flows from the deep cuff onto the heel and foot. I love the bold stitch definition of twisted rib and the strong texture it creates. These socks are worked in twisted rib throughout, with a standard heel flap and gusset construction that suits a wide range of foot shapes.


To celebrate the launch of this mini collection I am hosting a relaxed knit-along in my Ravelry group.

The KAL will run from 17th June to 31st August.

More details can be found in the Knit Share Love Ravelry group – I’d love to meet you, come over for a chat and some relaxed knitting.
