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.

This advanced-skill level sock pattern is worked from the toe up using multiple charts. Stitches

include, bobbles, cables, lace, twisted stitches and dropped yarn-overs.
