Introducing Water, the third pair of sock designs created by Pink Lemon Twist based on the classical elements. Once again, two designs based on a single element are combined in a  single pattern purchase. One design is simple and easily memorized for portable knitting and the other design is more complex. Stitch patterns for both designs are in both charted and written out forms.

The first design, Raindrops on  the Window, is fast and easy. The stitch pattern depicts the patterns raindrops make as they run down a window, occasionally being swept sideways by a gust of  wind, some of them dripping down alone, others joining with more raindrops and becoming bigger. This design is fun to knit and will work up well in both solid  and handpainted sock yarns.

The second design dedicated to Water is Mountain Stream. Every Winter, snow falls in the mountains and every Spring and Summer, as temperatures rise, the snow melts and runs down the  mountain. It begins as a small trickle but soon forms streams. These streams  occur every year, meandering downhill, around rocks and over the landscape,  sparkling in the sunlight. Farther down the mountain the streams converge and  become raging rivers, feeding lakes, providing water to the people and animals  who live in the area, and entertaining rafters. This design, while more involved  than the previous one, has a rhythm to it as the crossed stitches "flow" back  and forth over the purled background. It will show to it's best advantage in solid or handdyed solid yarns. Click on more photos to see pattern photo.
