Water Cube Socks

Remember the TRON socks I was teasing? Funny thing, the pattern is not quite ready for release.

But the Water Cube Socks are! Surprise!

This project was inspired by the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and all of the action that happened in the Water Cube.

Water Cube Socks

Each sock has a wavy lace motif and a strong center seam like a swimmer wiggling through the pool.

The cuff is worked with a picot edge for an added splash, and the sides alternate between ribbing and reverse-stockinette for a cube-like effect.

The star toe is like a spiral high dive.

The original pair was knit with Fresh From the Cauldron Yarns Superwash sock yarn in the colorway Pennywise.

The purple pair was made with a brand new sock yarn from Schaefer Yarns: Nichole. Both yarns are fantastic!

Don't fret TRON fans, though the movie sequel will be released in 2011, the sock pattern will be released before 2008 is over.

Just $4. Have fun with these socks and go for gold!
