The late afternoon spring light streams through the house like a melody of sunbeams. Each window has been pulled open, and outside in the verdant grass the chickens peck and burble amongst each other. Polished and matured, a vintage acoustic guitar sits, waiting. The breeze cradles with it the scent of fresh earth and bulb flowers. As the guitar sings with each pass of the fingers, it joins in the growing season’s symphony of fresh, gentle beauty.

Socks are cast on at the cuffs and worked from the top down seamlessly in the round. The heel can be worked as a traditional heel flap or as a short row heel, then the foot of the sock is also worked in the round down to the toes which are grafted closed with Kitchener Stitch.
