The Rainy Day Socks came about from the love of a favourite mug. Finding the right fit and design for holding my tea/coffee gives me a little spark of joy in the everyday. Socks are a bit like that for me too and finding the right pair of socks can brighten even the rainy days.

Rainy Day socks are worked from the top down with both charted and written instructions. This pattern has been tested and tech edited.
