"Survive the rainy season by challenging yourself to knit this stranded colorwork sock with a pattern that mimics the symbols found on a weatermap," tempts Gardiner. "Contrasting heel is worked using short rows." Symbols found on a weathermap! This is truly new, and a terrific, witty application for fair isle. Now your feet can storm about the house. The pattern is up to the usual high GYW standards, with the added bonus that US $2 will be donated to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund with every sale.
