When I was looking to come up with a name for these socks, I kept looking for a graceful and elegant name. Unfortunately, the first thing that came to mind when I looked at the stitch patern was the rope ladders they hang from helicopters to rescue people from the ocean. The garter waves evoke the water, and the yarn over columns look to me like the ladders. So much for an elegant name, eh?
