“‘`Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English)...’” - Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland*

Alice’s curiosity leads to quite an adventure as she makes her way down the rabbit hole. These socks are an adventure of their own, with simple techniques that lead to unexpected results. Beginning at the toe, twisted rib stitches work their way up the foot of the sock. Decreases in pattern paired with yarnovers create unexpected winding pathways and lace that curiously resemble the eyes appearing in the forest that Alice encounters. Twisted rib continues up the leg of the sock, where the lace pattern shifts to the sides of the sock leg. Worked in Tanis Fiber Arts ‘Seabreeze,’ this design highlights the tonal qualities of the yarn and uses predictable lace patterns to create an easy-to-work sock with dramatic impact.
