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.
