I swore I wasn’t going to do this. I wasn’t going to be that tiresome person who moves somewhere pretty and then drones endlessly on about the sea and the sky and the light and how it’s all a bit magic.
Because that’s insufferable. Worse yet, it’s boring. No one wants to hear that (just like no one really wants to hear about the odd dream you had last night).
But the fact remains that I did move somewhere I absolutely adore. And I am spending frankly alarming amounts of time staring out the window and sighing and thinking how lovely it all is (or skidding around on slippery rocks, twisting my ankles, scraping my knuckles, and earning new freckles, depending on the day). It would be silly to think this place isn’t finding its way into my knitting.
Still, and this is the important bit, while it may be true, I’m going to do my very best not to be a giant weirdo about it. I am not going to make you sit through any tiresome descriptions of how I wrote this while listening to the waves or got my pants soaked in seawater taking the photos. I am going to keep in mind that you may regard the idea of rugged, rocky, stormy beaches with the same sort of dread I reserve for hot, sandy, sunny places.
My hope isn’t that you knit these socks somewhere like this place. My hope is that you knit them somewhere you love every bit as much as I love this place, and that they stand you in good stead on all your future adventures!
This is a full ebook. It contains patterns for seven top-down socks, each written in several sizes and two gauges to fit a wide variety of feet.
