It is warmer here, but is it still wet and gray. Really, all the warmth has accomplished is to melt down the snow piles into blackened piles if ice. Summer is still a very long way away. Tiina Seppälä designed a pair of socks with the winding path of the Kalaoki river in Finland. I love her photo. It reminds me of the green, hazy days of summer.
Cosmic Fibers Yarn is a local indie dyer, but she also has an Etsy shop. I loved her green: The Woods Outside Merlotts. I had originally purchased Happy Feet in a blues/purple colorway, but I like Carrie's green better.
This pattern is really easy to follow. The 'river' stitches are 7 stitches and they flow back and forth with increase and decrease stitches. I love them.
Summer will come. When it does, it will be too hot to wear these wool socks. Until then I can dream.
