Kindred Spirits by Lisa K. Ross
“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
– Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables
Anne’s search for kindred spirits is never-ending, as she delights in the world around her and the friendships she makes. These socks are worked from the toe-up, beginning with a contrast color that is used to create Friendship Rings across the toes and around the leg. Simple cables (worked with or without a cable needle) create Little Birds of texture along the instep and front of the leg, making this a perfect design for a low-contrast speckled yarn. Work a second pair, reversing the colors, as a gift for your own Kindred Spirit.
