Even on a calm day in the middle of the ocean, there are always waves. Watching the waves is relaxing and meditative. I like to find a spot away from the crowd where I can appreciate the silence and be at one with nature. Waves are like life: they can be calm or stormy, but if you ride them, you will always travel somewhere. This top-down sock has a simple stitch pattern that’s textured to look like the lapping waves. The pattern is repeated throughout to bring you into a relaxed state of mind as if you are sitting quietly by the ocean watching the waves.
