The last four weeks of my life have been CRAZY. Everything was going fine and then all of a sudden I was hit from crazy stuff from all sides. Amidst all of this, I was trying to knit but really needed something calming, easy to memorize and quick to knit. When it came time to name these socks I looked up latin works for “calm” and was totally shocked to find “Equus” was one of them. For those who don’t know, Equus also happens to be the genus name for horses, so I couldn’t resist. :)

These top-down, lacy socks work up quickly, and are just the thing after a stressful day (or month, in my case).
