September is here, somehow. My thoughts are wandering to the cozy months ahead that bring rain and cold. I'm imagining pots of hot tea and time spent inside spinning and knitting.
September also brings a new pattern for the Socks For All Seasons club: Life Cycle Socks.
These socks pay tribute to the time of harvest, the culmination of a thousand tiny miracles that embody the growing season. Earthworms work the soil at your feet, restoring the biological dross of previous years to the promise of new life. A leafy stalk, heavy with fruit, bursts from the gusset on top of your foot; there to dry in the waning summer sun, in anticipation of the approaching harvest. Sow your stitches carefully and prepare to reap a beautiful pair of hand-knit socks...and the cycle of life continues.
7 (8, 9, 10) inches 17.5 (20, 23, 25.5 cm) unstretched. Will stretch to ﬁt 8 (9, 10, 11) inches 20 (23, 25.5, 28 cm).
This pattern is written for four sizes: Women’s Small (Women’s Medium/Men’s Small, Women’s Large/ Men’s Medium, Men’s Large)
