When I first started playing around with designing these socks, cancer was on my mind a lot. So many friends and family affected by this horrible disease, lives forever changed. I needed a creative outlet for what I was feeling and was inspired by the arrows on the “StandUp2Cancer” logo. As I worked on fine tuning the pattern, I thought about all the other horrible things, like diseases, bullying, mental illness that people must battle every day. The idea of standing up became the driving force behind the design, that each stitch knitted was a promise to stand up and lend strength to those fighting the unseen and sometimes seen battles every day. That in the end, we can all pull up our socks and stand up together!

$102 went to Stand Up 2 Cancer for the month of October! Thank you all who purchased the pattern during this time!! For the remainder of my school’s 2017-2018 year, I will be setting aside 50% of the proceeds to donate to the charity picked out by Xia, a beautiful and amazing young lady who lost her battle to brain cancer this year. There will also be a giveaway..because Xia loved rainbows and bright colors I will be giving away an appropriately colored skein and some other bright treats. The giveaway will end in June when our school year ends and anyone who purchases the pattern between November 1st and then will be entered. Worldwide purchases included!

Worked in the round on circular needles

Even though it has a lot of reverse stockinette stitch, the socks are mostly knit inside out to minimize the amount of purl stitches
