Tornadoes in Kansas

If I asked you to name some classic children’s films, probably one of the films you would think about is The Wizard of Oz. As a child, I loved this film, partly due to the colours and the songs. The film starts with one of my favourite songs of all time, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow,’ and soon after, a tornado starts to form, sending Dorothy from her dreary farm in Kansas to the colourful Land of Oz.

Even as adults, we can appreciate this story, as it’s a good reminder: we still search for outside validation. We seek to improve qualities we believe we lack but actually already possess and can’t see in ourselves.

This is a toe-up or cuff-down sock. Making a vanilla sock more interesting but still fairly straightforward to do.
