I’ve always loved stories about spies and spycraft. From a young age I was able to sing most of the Bond movie themes, and as a 12 year old I created my own cyphertext “code” that used symbols to replace letters. So you can imagine that a recent trip with my daughter to the Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., coupled with reading The Code Book about spycraft and codebreaking, really piqued my lifelong interest in all things secret. This collection let me explore keys and locks, coding and decoding, dead drops, field communication, and my favorite keepers of secrets—archivists.
The six socks in this set run the gamut of weights, techniques, and constructions to keep you - literally! - on your toes. This collection is the August 2014 Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project pamphlet. Many thanks to Malabrigo Yarns for their support.
