Last September, Hurricane Irma stopped over for a visit. Waiting for the storm to hit, watching for the slightest twist or turn in its path that would mean the difference between a direct hit and a near miss, hoping for changes in strength or in how far out from the center the hurricane force winds extended was highly stressful. And then the storm hit. Winds howled around us. Rain pounded down so hard we couldn’t see the house across the street. Tornados appeared one after another after another, eight of them in the space of two hours. Power went out about halfway through, and stayed out for three days.

Designing this sock was how I kept myself from panic. Determining the number of stitches, modifying the stitch patterns to use in the round, choosing the heel and toe, knitting the sock and writing the pattern. This sock kept my concentration off the rapidly approaching storm and helped me to get through it. It truly was a Safe Harbor for me.
