These Geeky socks are inspired by the Schrodinger’s cat thought experiment. The foot and leg of the socks are covered in squares that are half garter stitch and half stocking stitch. The cat in the box is both dead and alive.

These socks are for my Geek, he is a self professed nerd and lover of all science. I wanted the first socks that I designed, to be for him. He is so supportive of my knitting, designing and yarn obsession. I wanted a pattern that was easy to memorise, yet had a fun Geeky twist to it.

These unisex socks will delight any science nerd in your life, and even for the less scientific amongst us, they are a fun knit and look really great on.
