Skipping Stones Socks Pattern

The Skipping Stones Socks pattern was inspired by memories of days spent exploring the rivers and lakes around B.C., Canada. I can remember the joy I felt finding that perfect rock on the ground and watching it swirl through the air and bounce along the water. There was always something so special about watching ripples emerge around the once still water, eventually becoming still again. I hope that while you are knitting these socks you can feel these changes between excitement and stillness.
