These socks were inspired by cool lake breezes and named after my elementary school, which was on the banks of the Ripple River. I found a stitch pattern that reminds me of the ripples sent across the surface of the water by a gust of wind, and since these gusts head every which way, I mirrored the design down the back of the leg, and then reversed it on the second sock.
