Correlative | The Knitting Goddess Sock Club 2018

July | Ebb and Flow

Inspired by the beauty of the ocean and the power of the waves… The ebb of the tide reveals patterns etched into the sand by the graceful movement of the ocean and the gentle lapping waves create a soothing soundtrack to the awe inspiring vista as the sun creeps above the horizon.

Each sock has its own distinct personality but they work beautifully as a pair. This is the fourth design in my ‘Correlative’ series - pairs that don’t match but echo each other instead.

Perfect if you suffer from second-sock syndrome or simply love quirky mismatched socks. Prefer your socks to match - no problem, simply pick Sock 1 or Sock 2 and make a matching pair…
