Correlative | The Knitting Goddess Sock Club 2018


March | Leaf and Bloom

The gentle promise of spring … leaves gradually stretching themselves to the sun and blossoms beginning to unfurl. I wanted to capture the beauty of those first signs of spring. Worked from the toe up with beautiful lace panels on the side of the foot and leg. These are the second pair of socks in the ‘Twins’ series.

Each sock has its own distinct personality but they work beautifully as a pair. This is my first design in my Twins 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…
