Clouds and rain drops does get along pretty well, am I right? Even if they might not be your best friends when they gather in the sky, I’m pretty sure you’ll love to warm your feet in them. I called the pattern Soaked to the Skin and you can find it for free on Knotions website.
I’ve never been as soaked as during my trip in Northern Ireland a few years ago. It took only a couple of minutes for the rain to nearly drown me. Every clothes I was wearing was ruined (even my underwear), and it even managed to damp the clothes in my suitcase! To be honest, we looked so miserable that it made us laugh so hard, turns out it is one of my best memory of my trip over there.
From clouds to rain and again, the water cycle always amazed me. November is often a time of deep fog, grey cloudy days and heavy rain where I live. Even if I much prefer snow, I’ve come to really love the cloudy and rainy days. Seeing the streams of rain moving in the distance never fails to remind me of a countryside theater. They’re nothing better than a cup of hot tea and a little bit of knitting to enjoy the show from the outside elements.
The Soaked to the Skin socks are worked from the cuff down. Their cable-and-lace clouds and draught looking stitch pattern on the leg evolves into drops on the instep. They feature a reinforced heel flap and rounded toe.
For once I’m not responsible for the skilful behind-the-scene knitting. It all has been done by XX, Knotions sample knitter.
