Water works magic. How else do you explain my delight when I find a perfectly smooth piece of sea glass? Normally, glass on the ground is litter and fills me with dismay. But, if it’s been worn down by the sand and the water, it feels like I’ve stumbled upon a magical gemstone. These socks, with their soft lines and rounded edges, remind me of perfectly smooth pieces of glass just waiting to be discovered.

This is one of those socks that’s very easy to describe (ribbing grows out of the side of the heel flap and wraps around your foot at a marvelously becoming angle), and easy to knit (knit your knits and purl your purls and you’ve got it), but surprisingly tedious to actually write out. The charts look a little odd, and you have to do a bit of funny business with stitch markers, but after a row or two you’ll have the rhythm.
