Winding Way Socks - by Emily Wessel

The medieval heart of Edinburgh is built on a hill, and is crowned by a fairytale castle. Stone staircases, enclosed in narrow wynds and closes create mysterious passages which ascend the hill. The geometric lace pattern which adorns these socks is inspired by these staircases.
