โ€œHenry! Henry! I canโ€™t find Dorothy! Sheโ€™s somewhere out in the storm!โ€ - Auntie Em, The Wizard of Oz

The adventure to Oz begins as a tornado sweeps its way through Kansas, blowing away everything in its path-- including Dorothyโ€™s house! These socks are an adventure of their own with twisting cables and windswept lace patterns dancing their way across the plains. Constructed from the cuff down, these socks use a repeated cable/lace pattern that is both charted and written. The slip stitch heel flap creates a unique woven look that adds durability to your footwear, while gusset decreases in stockinette create clean lines with a perfect fit. Itโ€™s time for your socks to be Blown Awayโ€ฆ ready for whatever adventure the weather might bring.
