Description
 
Pink Lemon Twist introduces the first in a new series of sock designs based on the Classical Elements - Earth. Each of the patterns from the Elements Sock Collection will have two sock designs: one quickly memorized, and the other more  complex. Top down construction, stitch patterns in both charted and written out  format, and thorough directions make these easily accessible to all.

Ridge and Furrow Socks is a simple design with an easy to memorize stitch pattern. It was inspired by the act of growing things and the care, planning and preparation involved. By digging in the dirt, we are able to feed both our bodies and our spirits. The stitch pattern naturally creates a ridge and furrow  texture down the leg of the sock and the lacy holes of the yarn overs remind us of seeds, carefully placed in the earth in the hopes that a plant will sprout there. The regularity of the stitches and simplicity of the lines mean this  design will work well in both a more multicolor yarn as well as any of the more  monochromatic hand dyed or solid colored yarns.

Terra Incognita, words usually followed by a warning of sea monsters or dragons on ancient maps, is a design that pays homage to the mysteries of our planet. While technology and space exploration have given us information beyond what our ancestors could have ever imagined, we are still learning about the Earth and the way it works and balances itself. The richly textured stitches of this design will have your needles dancing. Despite having a more complex  overall stitch pattern, the individual elements of the pattern are no more difficult than the stitches in the Ridge and Furrow Socks.  A solid colored yarn or an almost solid color for this design is recommended to show off the stitch pattern.
