Summer of Socks: August Sock Set

Color
Lot 1
Lot 2

Join us for a Summer of Socks! We have collaborated with our favorite dyers to create a unique sock set for each month of summer: June, July and August!

August Edition:

This month we worked with Sarah Wharton of Traveling Yarn located in Phoenix, Arizona. Sarah has created a beautiful set inspired by the monsoon rains that come every summer to the desert.

From Sarah: This sock set was designed with Arizona sunsets in mind. The colorway represents the cooling monsoon storms that provide a brief break in the summer heat of the valley and the pop of color for the toes and heels reminds me of the beautiful skies that are left behind after the storm. The monsoons are my favorite part of the summer, and the only thing that makes them bearable! 

This Sock Set includes: 1- 100g skein, 1- 20g mini skein and The Prickly Pear Socks pattern by Renate Kamm.

From the Renate Kamm about her inspiration for her sock pattern:
 I remember in my childhood, in the late 1950’s, socks were made from left-over yarn. Most of the time the cuff, heel, and toes sections were done with different yarn than the rest of the socks. Back then, this was not a design feature. It had to be done because there wasn’t enough yarn of one kind. I still mix different colors of yarns and find it quite ‘normal’ to make socks this way. These socks reflect this old way of making socks.
