One of my favourite getaways is a ski vacation to Banff, in my home province of Alberta, Canada. Gondolas and chairlifts take you up the mountain to Sunshine Village ski resort, and once there, you can take a run down Goat’s Eye Mountain. The views are nothing short of breathtaking. Days on the hill are chilly, and a pair of hand knit wool socks are the perfect choice to stay warm and toasty. I hope you love knitting these textured socks as much as I do.
Happy knitting, Friends.

Goat’s Eye socks are a beautiful, simple to knit textured pattern featuring a faux cable and gorgeous garter ribbing.

I love speckled and variegated sock yarns, but sometimes I just want the pattern and texture to shine! Goat’s Eye Socks, and your favourite tonal yarn are the perfect choice.
