Lace and cable cuff down socks.

From clouds to rain and back again, the water cycle always amazed me. November is often a time of deep fog, grey cloudy days and heavy rain where I live. Even if I much prefer snow, I’ve come to really love the cloudy and rainy days. Seeing the streams of rain moving in the distance never fails to remind me of a countryside theater. They’re nothing better than a cup of hot tea and a little bit of knitting to enjoy the show from the outside elements.

The Soaked to the Skin socks are worked from the cuff down. Their cable-and-lace clouds and draught looking stitch pattern on the leg evolves into drops on the instep. They feature a reinforced heel flap and rounded toe.
