Sock Inspiration: Martian Spring

March 10, 2015

A freshly-knit pair of socks is a great way to put a little spring in your step this month. Virginia Sattler-Reimer’s newest design in Spud & Chloë Fine yarn, Martian Spring, features a pretty lace motif in a vibrant color (shown here in #7812 Lizard). Knit in the round from the top down, these striking socks will be your favorites for frolicking this season!

Virginia was kind enough to share her thoughts about the design process with us:

When choosing yarn for my new lace sock idea, I knew I wanted to use something with great stitch definition that would also feel soft on the feet, and Fine is the perfect choice! A Minnesota winter really makes a person long for the bright greens of spring, especially in February and March when it seems like so much of the world is already bursting into bloom, so I chose this really bright and happy green. I love working with Fine, the fiber mix (80% wool/20% silk) makes it lovely for lots of items, and a great choice for socks.
